One of the more significant things I did this year, aside from leaving a job after 10 years, was to launch the Kyle Callahan Mysteries. The first book, ‘Murder at Pride Lodge’, has been doing well since it came out in September – big thanks to the readers. For me it is now all about doing those things we want to do, loving those people we love with all our hearts, seeing, feeling, saying what we most want to, with the recognition that time is a non-renewable resource. A day not lived fully is a day that never will be. In the words of that immortal song, ‘When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin’ Along):
Wake up, wake up you sleepy head!
Get up, get out o’ bed!
Cheer up, cheer up the sun is red,
Live, love, laugh and be happy!
