I shall now start on my customary end of year break, and so, apart from a post already written and due to appear on Christmas Day, I do not expect to be posting till some time in early January.
So may I extend my warmest festive greetings to you all. To all who are Christians, or who aren’t but are happy to receive Christian greetings, may I wish you a very merry Christmas. To all others, may I extend my best wishes for the festive season. And to everyone, may I wish a happy and peaceful New Year.
And may I finish this year, blogging-wise at least, with this very beautiful late painting by Caravaggio of the Adoration of the Shepherds, on display in in the Museo Nazionale in Messina.
See you next year.
