Well, a post or two from 2013 went missing. For the best, believe me. Now we're in a new year, with a new attitude.

I said that 
just to see if it's true. Attitudes present themselves at my internal doorstep in a fairly regular basis. Some knock more insistently than others, but I open the door to all of them, perhaps even the ones I shouldn't.

In Iron Pot I wrote a series of poems about grief after my dad died. One was grief as a gentle old lady, one was grief as a thief stealing even the threadbare clothes off my back, one was grief as a ravenous teenager. I think it might be time for a series on attitudes. I would like to put a few of them firmly in their place.

Happy New Year, everyone! May your attitudes be ever on your side.
