Wrote about Montaigne, New Year's Resolutions, and going with the flow in the Independent on New Year's Day. It's quite a personal piece and, sure enough, I haven't made any resolutions this year. It's one of those years that seems to call for some very different spirit anyway.
Now, though, the flow is taking me back to a hectic week of work! But it's all getting exciting - How to Live is being published a week on Thursday, and there is lots to do.
A new decade dawns, sunny and frosty, at least in London, where I look up through my attic window this morning into a taut blue sky.
