We went for a walk around our neighbourhood last night to see the Christmas lights.
If anything epitomises change, this is it. The students are moving out, families are moving in. And with the families come the family-like things that we hadn’t even realised people around here didn’t do much—until they started doing them.
Young children in the street. People walking their dogs. Decorating the house at Christmas time.
Change has crept up on us.
So has Christmas, and the end of another year.
We’ve been busy, both at work and with writing. Some specific highlights for us were the release of Alliance and Confluence, selling our first foreign rights (Japanese), and the new book.
We’ve both got the week off, and we’re looking forward to relaxing. Reading a book or two, writing some more, seeing some movies.
Here’s wishing all of you a happy holiday and best wishes for the festive season.
