Happy New Year!

“And now let us welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been.” – Rainer Maria Rilke.

I’ve been challenged to start a blog and there’s no better time to start than at the beginning of the New Year when hopes are high, intentions have been newly set and we are all determined to start as we mean to continue.

I chose the quote above because Rilke is one of my favourite writers and because I’m starting afresh in many areas of my life. I don’t have a specific theme for this blog yet, but one thing I can tell you is that there will be a lot of commentary on books and writers as I majored in English at university, am former English teacher and a lifelong lover of literature.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you’ll bear with me as I find my blogging feet.

Wishing you the all the best 2017 has to offer!
