Another year done, another one to go...

Published by MarkE in the blog MarkE's blog. Views: 342

Well, that was quite a year all in all: eyes stable, kidneys still forming stones, diabetes reasonably under control so all things medical quite good. Still employed, so work going well. Married, so life itself good.

All I need now is to simply keep it all working a few more decades, try to make my wife happy as I am, wait to see if I am to be blessed with grandchildren, have a try at publishing a few poems (working title: "Thrown by the Light", Ebook at @£2.50 a copy...) and see if I can convince anyone to buy my pictures (available from Photocrowd). No worries, in any case.

Which leaves only the Aspergers, which can't be cured but then with an employer that will let me simply work and needs no ambition I can live well even so. I don't need to recognise faces, to be able to see emotions the way others seem to, so long as I can live and work to the rules as written rather than to the unwritten rules I simply cannot perceive.

So: quite a year.

Here's to 2017.
