Today belongs to Saint Sylvestre on the French calendar, and
New Year’s Eve is the second ‘réveillon’ (after Christmas Eve)
– where staying awake to see in the new day, as in many parts
of the world, is part of the fête that officially delineates
the end of one year and a new beginning, as we write on the
pages of our new ‘agenda’ or diary.
Looking back, and then forward to what lies ahead, as December
draws to a conclusion, accompanied by ‘a burst of magic fire
in the sky’ – what wonders will 2013 bring we enquire?
Our creations, as we set forth our desires; winging their way into
the ethers before they then find form – coming back down to earth,
as the new year is born.
