Hello 2015

It hasn’t happened yet, but in other parts of the world, the New Year has finally rolled in with a bang.

Here’s wishing more blessings, good health, love, peace, all your hearts desire and of course, wealth for everyone!

I leave you with a poem to ponder:


This is newness: every little tawdry
Obstacle glass-wrapped and peculiar,
Glinting and clinking in a saint’s falsetto. Only you
Don’t know what to make of the sudden slippiness,
The blind, white, awful, inaccessible slant.
There’s no getting up it by the words you know.
No getting up by elephant or wheel or shoe.
We have only come to look. You are too new
To want the world in a glass hat.

—Sylvia Plath


  1. Love the poem and have enjoyed reading your posts this year. Wishing you all the very best for 2015 🙂

  2. Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

    Happy New Year Dean! Wishing you and yours the very best!

  3. Happy New Year to you too – I love the poem, it definitely sums up walks on Dartmoor when you can only look at the tors and know that you’ll be back to climb them in the summer!
