Since these holidays are about family, however you celebrate, alone or apart, here's a fantasy family for you, perhaps an ideal one, perhaps just an ordinary one, a little bit strange in a good way.
With warmest wishes to every
single person who passes
this way, I hope you'll stay a while. May the New Year be kind to all of us on this troubled planet.
(This is actually a black and white
photo of an old, highly textured painting of mine which I've
scanned and coloured digitally).
