Writing Christmas cards. Writing always fraught with whatever the year has given or taken.
Clearing the deck—or desk—for Janus, god of beginnings and ends, passages of whatever sort. Looking behind; looking ahead. Writing on the threshold of two years, in that shivery liminal space smelling of old woodsmoke and cardamom where everything again for just a night or two seems possible.
