Goodbye 2013

Last evening of 2013 (1)

31st December 2013.

The last moments of the day were bright and sunny and the donkeys all seemed to come to a complete halt as if reflecting on the end of 2013. It was completely still.  We watched the last sunset of the year and now it has become a very cold New Year’s Eve.  Time to light the fire and wonder what the new year will bring.

Pray for peace, particularly in Syria where the civilians are the main target for all the mad men with guns.  Particularly pray for the volunteer doctors and nurses risking their lives in that country to tend the wounds of the victims.

About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I like to listen to BBC Radio 4 and the wind in the pine trees. I am writing a comedy about a school in Benidorm. My favourite film of all time is "Jean de Florette". If I had my time again I would not have spent the early 1970s working for Special Branch.
