Whilst I hate to disagree with T. S. Eliot, I am here to tell him that April is not the cruellest month. It’s January. Or February. Or March. Essentially it’s the months after Christmas when you remember anew that Winter is far from over.
This is where I like to rely on my support systems to make sure that I don’t get swamped by a deluge of S.A.D. Something which I find staves off the chill of the long winter nights is a good radio drama. And just in time I notice that the BBC iPlayer has uploaded a smorgasbord of Gothic delicacies. There is a new version of Dracula, a monstrous spoof entitled Victoria Van Helsing and the Curse of Crossmyloof, and a whole section dedicated to The Lunar Effect.
I plan to curl up with a hot chocolate, my cross stitch, and listen to my heart’s content. See you in Spring.
