Due to a combination of having been away on holiday and being mega-busy on my return I've had minimal involvement over the last six weeks with the community. However, I'm now clear of that and fully on-line again.
To celebrate I'd like to take the time to wish everybody a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful new year. I hope we all are still here to share new good news (whatever that might include) during 2016 and beyond.
2015 has been a very interesting and positive year based on my memory of the year with the xxxxmabs seeming to shine the light on an improving future for us as a community.
I decided to share a photo, not of a seasonal view, but, of a view that when I saw it made me hope for a bright future for us all. The photo was taken at 09:49 on 18th Nov just after we had left the lodge at The Routeburn Falls, with a further 9km to walk that day. Views like this always inspire me to make a wish and also make me think of the hard work going on behind closed doors to try to improve our future.
Here's hoping to talk to you all in 2016 (and beyond), all the best, rob
