A Merry Christmas to us all; God bless us, every one! ~ Tiny Tim; A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
I love Charles Dicken’s books. In a world which sometimes seems a little mad, (and sad), there’s a certain nostalgic comfort in curling up with an old book. Or, to be more accurate in my case, listening to a great book while doing some last minute Christmas cleaning…..
Ah, but if only our world today could be visited today by the ghosts of our future, would it change us?
