Happy New Year

I was going to write “I do wish all my readers a happy new year” but realised that the use of the possessive pronoun was wrong. Those who read what I write do not belong to me, and they read far more than my writings. I do not possess them in the same way that a performer possesses an audience.

So I shall write carefully.

I do wish all those who have read or reads what I write a very happy, safe and prosperous new year.
