What a year this has been! I've seen this site take off, met some great people while doing all the talks and workshops I've undertaken from Slough to Singapore, broken a finger, survived my 60th birthday celebrations, and conducted most of a Haydn symphony! In addition I gather from the publishers that the book is selling well. Then there has been the credit crunch and fears of what 2009 will bring.
Thanks for reading this stuff and this is me saying "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!"
