Happy New Year everyone – to all my blog readers of course but also to all those who don’t read them, yet. Special wishes and hopes for the troubled peoples of the Middle East and Africa and all those who are still suffering from the terrible climatic consequences of Global Warming around the World from the USA and the Caribbean to Asia. Where we can make a change, let’s do it. Maybe some more dictators need to leave the stage this year and some other politicians who still refuse to put their people’s welfare above their personal interests and prejudices. Let’s remember that most of the World’s problems are man-made and, maybe, this year, we should all try to do at least something about that.
No apologies for playing this song again – I can’t think of a better one for the new year. Just imagine! My only regret is that I think this every new year.
My first novel, Stephen Dearsley’s Summer Of Love, is published on 31 October 2013. It is the story of a young fogey living in Brighton in 1967 who has a lot to learn when the flowering hippie counter culture changes him and the world around him.
