The New Years Dawns! And a look back over 2012

31 December, 2012

Fast approaching the New Year here and with it the month of January.   Best wishes to all for MMXIII!

January is named after Janus (Ianuarius), the Roman god of the doorway, pictured as looking both forward and back.   We will revisit the themes of doorways, transport and travel for January.  What with stepping into the New Year.  As usual, if there is something on this theme you would like to see, let me know.

Looking back over Novermber and December, we see two months of light posting:
