Ringing in the New Year...

...in the dark.

We lost power at about 10 pm, New Year's Eve, with less than a half a scene left to watch in the marvellous Canadian zombie movie FIDO. BC Hydro called it a 'fade-out', but the power clicked off and stayed that way for a little more than two hours.

Enough to enjoy an atmospheric, fireplace and candle-lit entry into 2008.

It was lovely.

Onto things bookish...

Here's a terrific interview posted by Mark Blevis on his 'Just One More Book' site, with BC authors and illustrators Lee Edward Fodi, Kirsti Wakelin and James McCann.

And finally...

I send out to you my fond hopes for the happiest of upcoming years. May you find the time to read your favourite books, conspire with your dearest compatriots and if you are inclined to put pen to paper, may the words that fall onto the page form themselves, with a touch of magic (and a dash of whimsy) into nothing less than a best-seller of epic proportions.

I'll drink to that.

Oh, let's be honest. I'll drink to just about anything.

Happy New Year, baby!

What a lovely wish for your friends, Karen.

And my wish back at you, borrowed from a Unitarian minister whose name I have long forgotten...

"May your new year unfold rich in meaning, creative challenge and loving connections."

So pretty. I can't think of a lovelier way to greet the new year.

All the best in 2008!

What a nice New Years wish! I wish you the same, Karen (as well as a prize or two and an interview on Stroumbo!)
