Happy Solstice! When the days begin to lengthen up here in the North. There’s anticipation for more light each day, and for The Day, for what happens … for gifts, surprises, family being together, for all the joy. There is sadness too, people who have left or died, but the Birth remains …

To Bethlehem: ‘This little book is delightful, full of … poems on this timeless subject. … the most fun is the little prose vignettes of the common people in the Christ-child story. The slave who looks after the wise men’s camels, or the overworked maid at the inn who has to fetch water for the birth, and many more. A lovely gift for the reader on your Christmas list!’ Rosalind Adams. Available from Amazon and Kindle.
