Some of you may know that I've been ill for many, many weeks.
(I'm just about over it) 
You certainly know that these past days have been just heartbreaking from a world news perspective, and most know that the weather has been treacherous in many places.
Then the mail delivered me a new year!
I have loved Rima Stains work for many years.  She sent me her new calendar, and lifted my spirit up out of the muck an mire, the illness and the cruelty, the cold and damp.
Just a few clumsy snapshots of January
 that can not replicate the true wonder
 only just barely indicate some tiny parts
 of the multiple delights within these pages
 but you can see the real thing and more:
Just go to
