    Amazing list as always. Looks like you covered a lot of themes. No idea what anthropocenes are though. Wish I had as much reading time! And you’ve done it with a large move like us! Then again half of my house is fabric and paper so it takes at least twice as long to unpack! I hope you’re settling in ok and that it’s warmer there than is is for us at the moment! I’ve got big dreams hoping to achieve this year (or at least start on) as I have a clear diary (no teaching, commissions or exhibitions yet), so I hope to plan a better work life balance which will entail a lot of Thriving Christian Artists book and blog reading, and enough fiction to escape into!

    I hope you all have an exciting 2022 too
