Hachii & the whole Winters family are wishing you all the loveliest of Christmases! We hope you are spending today with eggnog & gingerbread, & wrapped up in the arms of someone you love.
& I realise, too, that the holiday season is a difficult time for many of us. If that is you – I know how that feels, & I hope you are doing all right today. I hope you know that you are so beautiful & strong, & that you are not required today to put on a happy face. & I hope you know that my inbox is always open if you would like to talk.
One quick note before I log off - in the case that we are not friends on social media, you may not be aware that I am having one more real life event before 2017 shuts its eyes. Half Mystic Journal's Issue IV: Grazioso is launching on December 28th, 2017 over at BooksActually, on 9 Yong Siak Street in Singapore. There will be an introduction by myself & performances by HM contributors & supporters Natalie Wee, Cyril Wong, Jonathan Meur, Daphne Tan, & Joshua Ip, along with an open mic at the end of the evening around the theme of grazioso for audience members to share their voices. The event is free & open to the public. It will be a night full of love & song, & if you are interested, we'd be honoured to see you there.
Also, a gentle reminder to fill out Six Impossible Things' 2017 reader survey if you have a moment over these next few days - it takes about ten minutes & helps so much as I look forward & consider what projects to bring you in 2018.
Merry Christmas, my darlings. I am so thankful for the privilege of knowing you. Have a warm & joyful holiday. xx
