This is part 4 of a series which reckons that Christmas is a bit melancholy at its core, but that we kinda embrace that sadness and find some kind of beauty in it. I imagine that it should work rather well on headphones in bed, on your iPod while battling the winter elements or when you are blissed out in front of an open fire.
I’ve tried it at Christmas parties; it failed badly.
It’s been a wonderful, transformative year. I’d like to say thank you to those online people who continue to educate, support, indulge and enhance me. I’ve met so few of you in real life and it matters not. We are still pretty much weirdoes (but that’s changing) so our support of each other is, for me, very valuable.
Please accept this moody Christmas mix as my gratitude for all you have done, your downloads, subscriptions, comments, emails and more. I am very very grateful for it all.
Happy Christmas/whatever you’re into, and again, thank you so much for being part of this sticky goop we call the net. We make it work and we lead on this.
And I daresay, we’ll be helping each other survive this Christmas in meatspace!
