Season's Greetings

You will have noticed that I have not been doing any serious blogging since about September last year. This is the typical case of having access to the technology but not being "with it". Thanks to all those people who kept checking despite the lack of updates. It is good to know that there are people out there who are still interested in what I do.

(The picture to the left was taken by me last winter. In the background is the Institute where I "work". I no longer have to dream of white Christmases. What I have to dream about now are Christmases with sunshine [we can forget the rain])

I have almost a thousand contacts in my inboxes, and so it would be very difficult for me to send everyone personal holiday greetings. Please forgive me for the "mass production" manner in which you are receiving this but it can't be helped with my moving from one activity to the next and one paper or chapter of my dissertation to the next.

As we come to the close of 2006, I have been overcome with just how important the friendships I have made are to me. Thanks to those who continue to pray for me (for whatever reason), and to those who across the Atlantic or any other ocean through their e-mails and e-cards can make me laugh.

If you think that 2006 was great, I hope that at the end of 2007 you will be able to say that 2006 just the start. To all those who had children, got degrees, got new jobs, new posts, started new programmes, met distinguished people, got engaged, got married, fell in love, I am always happy at your successes/milestones.

May God continue to bless you all.

Your friendship means a lot to me.
