The end of the year. A time for reflection no doubt as you consider what has come to pass in the past twelve months. For many of you it will have been a turbulent year as you deal with someone like me in your life. You may still be locked in the dance with our kind and now sit reflecting on the cost that has been extracted from you to engage in this unrelenting whirlwind of ups and downs. Others of you will perhaps be a little further on the road to recovery having uncoupled yourself from the narcissist in your life and you are now dealing with the emotional aftermath of this most toxic of relationships. My observation and imagination causes me to recognise that you are doubtless surrounded by a vast array of emotions, emotions that are alien and unachievable to me. That does not concern me. I have explained how I must be unburdened from such feelings in order to be the person that I am. You, by contrast, flick through pain, regret, joy, elation and hope as you engage in the customary nostalgia that takes place t this time of year. Not I. I seldom reflect on what has been. I only do so in order to better recall my past conquests and achievements and for the purposes of spreading my works amongst you all. I prefer to look forward. Dwelling serves no purpose, old fuel is no fuel to me. I am always looking forward, anticipating, contemplating and evaluating. I must drive forward, always forwad, for if I stop I will vanish. That is the fate that awaits me and it is one I accept and do so without complaint. This is how it must be for me and I embrace it.
Thus as we stand on the cusp of a New Year (those readers in the east will nearly be there by the time this appears on their devices) I would like to thank you for reading and contributing. Your comments, observations and questions are all received with my customary polite thanks for I realise that I cannot dance alone and I need you too. So, thank you for your involvement so far, thank you for sparring with me, complimenting me, insulting me or just for reading my words. I look forward to our relationship continuing in 2016.
