I’m trying hard to ignore the arbitrary New Year’s thing but it’s actually more difficult than I thought it’d be. New month, end of holiday season, there is a change. Presumably the weather’s going to get worse, meaning more snow, more cold. Last snow and cold was awful, no reason to think the next isn’t going to be just as bad. By awful, I don’t mean the snow and cold, I mean the reaction to it. So, bummer there. New Maugham book to read. Is December always this long?
