A very Happy New Year to all that pass by the pages of '28mm Victorian Warfare', here's to a fabulous 2022 and whatever it may bring you. For yours truly, my immediate focus is to reconnect with a hobby that has brought me so much joy and fostered friendships around the world, yet has been sadly lacking in my life of late.
2021 has not been a good year for many of us, but I am determined not to let the difficulties that it presented define who I am. That said much has changed and so it is with a degree of caution that I launch into this latest foray of the most wholesome of hobbies. Gone is the self congratulatory review of the year, simply because there has been very little to crow about, but I do hope to show a meagre increase in production over the coming months.
Changes to my role at work and difficulties with the infrastructure have caused an unprecedented level of frustration that has seen any joy stymied. As a result, I withdrew in upon myself, not seeming capable of producing anything noteworthy to share. That's not to say that 2021 was a completely devoid of hobby love and as I reacquaint myself with the intricacies of Blogger I see I have 46 draft posts! Many of these are nothing more than titles or references to ideas that I wanted to try, but nonetheless they present a tangible resource to mine in the coming months.
I am making no predictions, nor targets, just a tentative first step, back to a world of creativity that has been sadly devoid of late. With that comes the tantalising prospect or re-connecting with a great many of you that I have become to know as friends. Throughout my self imposed absence, I was truly buoyed by the many messages enquiring after my whereabouts, gestures that have inspired me to remove the virtual dust sheets from this tired old weblog. Decisions as to whether one continues with Blogger can wait, for now let me, once again, wish you all a happy and prosperous start to the year.
