That’s a wrap

May you always be blessed
With walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain,
A warm cup of tea by the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all that your heart might desire.

Irish blessing


tunnelThe Atlantic
put together a most amazing collection of photographs from 2015

and Slate reviewed the year with a list of the good things that happened each day.

I spent part of Christmas Eve watching (with sentimental tears at appropriate moments) a romantic comedy (The Holiday) that almost 60% of male movie critics on Rotten Tomatoes disliked (only 51% of the female critics liked it). But 80% of the public liked it, and I fell in with the public. Then I read on Mother Jones that one of my favorite movies, Love Actually, has been “a little film that Americans would bicker about for more than a decade.”  The Atlantic and ThinkProgress have devoted space to it. It’s unbelievable to me that people debate such things, yet leave substantial topics untouched. It’s like network news hours where as much time is given to Hollywood as to Washington, D.C.

Happy New Year
