though there are still a few days left of 2011, christmas is always a clear beacon that the year is finally coming to a close. it hasn't been the best of years, really - i've learnt many lessons, but they were hard lessons to learn. with the shortest day now behind us i can begin the process of emerging from the dark, which seems to have already begun. curled up by the fire with narnia on the tv, christmas lights twinkling & a sleepy puppy at my feet, i might almost let myself believe i've got a pretty good chance of making it. and to anybody else who needs reassurance: you've got a pretty good chance too.
to you and your families: have a safe & happy christmas :) ♥

ETA: i'm having a wonderful christmas - thank you for all your wishes! i was lucky enough to receive a HD camera this year, and so i knocked up this little video this morning for you to glimpse into my christmassy world. not the most cheerful song in the world, but a beautiful one all the same!
