Some Highlights from 2012

I’m conscious that my blogging is so occasional as to be almost non-existent. I regret this as, regardless of whether anyone engaged with what I wrote, I found the experience to be enriching. I observe that many of those whom I view as part of ‘my’ bloggers community, have gone the same way as me - a notable exception being Living Wittily. I think that Facebook is mainly responsible, but that’s another post.

On this, the final day of 2012, as I’ve reflected on the last year and jotted down some of my highlights, I’ve decided to post them. All of these highlights have been life-giving and in them I’ve experienced the touch of God in some way or the other.

Francis Spufford, Unapologetic, is most definitely the ‘Book of the Year’. The writing is intensely beautiful at times, while being refreshingly raw at others. Sarah Quigley’s novel, ‘The Conductor’, about the events surrounding the composition of Shostakovich’s Seventh Symphony, ‘The Leningrad’ was captivating and moving.
