It turned out to be a super 12 months, this 2016. Got to see some beautiful cities Kazan, Ekaterinburg and of course St Petersburg (second time). Visited the Koh Samui island in Thailand and loved the modern yet very loving Thai people.
Got to read some lovely books: Hedgehog in the fog, The little Prince, and the three volume autobiography of Aleksey Maximovich Pyeshkoff (aka Maxim Gorky).
Still reading Walden by Henry David Thoreau and loving every page of it as Thoreau tears through the fabric of the empty modern lifestyle with his practical simplicity.
May 2017 be all the more wonderful and keep us all amazed like little ones gazing at the stars in the clear night sky… Amen
