    With so few years left to me, I’m not willing to consign any of them to the dustbin of history. Still, I do hope the coming year is less fraught with difficulties, and filled with new joys for us all. Happy New Year!

    Hi Susan – thank you so much for the links … and as you say – ‘good riddance’ to 2020. All the very best for next year … with thoughts – Hilary

    I just have to say new year good wishes and a zillion thanks for every post on your blog. Our virtual friendship has been ;such a blessing during my lockdown.

    Only the best ‘tunes’ and performers on here. Shoreacres is right – that weird mix of general awfulness and (guilty as I write) much personal happiness thus far makes me reluctant to rule it out. But right now is the grimmest time here. We look to a democratic majority in the Senate, Joe Biden’s inauguration and signs that the vaccines are taking effect. And, of course, there’s always spring in the not too far distance.

      You and shoreacres put me to shame, but as it’s always a good thing to find points of light in the dark, do keep ’em coming, as I know you will with more Russian music coming up!
