Welcome to this blank canvas, as it were.
It will get coloured in during the course of the forthcoming 365 days of our new circuit round old SOL INVICTUS. (Started this page 1st Jan 2021)
|It should not be
forgotten that Calendars are FICTIONS. There are many different
culturally-specific calendars. In
this country it happens to be 2021. Now, 2021 is not really a
THING. It's only an idea. So when, people say, as they will, that they are glad 2020
is over, they don't quite seem to get it. Nothing was transmogrified at
the stroke of midnight on 31st Jan 2020, except maybe in your
mind or mental attitude.
You could do worse than occupy yourself with perusing the then NEW pages I did last year in the never-to-be forgotten 2020
Talking of the Sun, don't forget the MOON,
our good Earth
& the rest of the UNIVERSE
or whatever you do:
(Look a SUNBEAM, home of the Hummingbird)
So last year I know but...
that boring Pandemic, is proving more than just a flash in the pan, as big C contagion continues unabated, the vicious virus mutating merrily & spreading with gay abandon (especially this Yuletide passed & into the "new" year) to the consternation of us all.
Don't wish to rain on anyone's parade. Call me a cynic. Possibly a realist. Fresh new start, New Year's Resolutions, Morning-after hangovers ? Remind yourself of this, the millenial mother of all new years, longer ago than some of you have been alive, I suspect.
Are you surprised to discover that in brand-new Brexit Britain, with control having been taken back, apparently, old-fashioned Neo-Liberal Capitalist Consumerism with a pale green veneer still rules the roost. Talking of eggs breaking & making omlettes, sorry to prophesy the price of food will rise.
Am already playfully working on a few pages,
to be revealed soonish or laterish.
Watch this space.

NEWSFLASHES, February 2021:
Old Dog, New Trick?
This month, my
9-year-old son taught me some new (well, 1980s rapper) slang I hadn't heard
12th Feb - Chinese (&Tibetan) Year of the OX begins.
13th Feb - almost a decade on, 7.3-magnitude earthquake off Fukushima, Japan, scientists say was aftershock of 11 March 2011 disaster (quake, tsunami, triple nuclear meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, when more than 18,000 died.)

Those new to this site, please note it's a HYPERTEXT. If/ when possible, please view & read the page in its entirety AND also go back to click each internal link (some pictures included). The links are fun to follow (bringing you interesting, entertaining juxtapositions) & are part of the overall design. You'll get the idea as you go along. It's fairly easy to find your way around.
As nothing is set in stone, this page is worth revisiting from time to time, parfois even, if you feel inclined. Each & every page can be improved & I'll continue trying to do so, tweaking as I go, as time & energy allow, while I'm still capable. Might (almost certainly will) die with some typos intact on this website legacy of my life.
Well, not to worry, as one of my "heroes," dear old Sam said:
"Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness."
(name & form, empty of inherent existence, sunyata, nothing more or less than 'Quantum' foam or something)
