The End of the Year
Starting this blog was one of my better decisions; I enjoy writing it even if few are reading. For those who are, my sincere thanks and best wishes for the coming year.
Here's an excerpt from a letter dated December 31, 1869* from George Sand to Gustave Flaubert:
"All's well here, and everyone adores everyone else. It's the end of the year. We send you your share of the seasonal kisses."
*From: The Correspondence of Gustave Flaubert & George Sand (The Harvill Press, 1999)
