Well, that’s it! 2011 has been and gone, as have all the festive guests, and even the NSW has returned to work today, so I am rattling around The Cave like a spare part with only a mountain of laundry for company.
Being at somewhat of a loose end, may I remind all Charioteers that apart from being the festival days of Santa Marciana and Sáo Julião, next Monday, 9th January also marks the WOLF MOON of 2012, albeit somewhat earlier than last year. No doubt Bearsy and Ferret could explain to a thick wolf why this should be – oscillations in orbits, changes in the axix of rotation of the respective bodies and suchlike?
During last year I came across a marvellous site provided by an excellent photographer playing games with the Moon Laurent Lavader. He sounds a bit French to me, but no matter. Well worth a visit.
So, belated greetings for 2012 from me and the NSW. Don’t forget to have a howl with me on Monday night wherever you are in the world. It’s good for the soul, y’know.
