Another year comes to a close. I hope yours was a good one. I’ll finish up 2022 with what I usually do – a look back at some favorite posts of the soon-to-conclude year. “Favorite” means well-commented or just generally liked by you (or me). I’ve listed these in no particular order, other than chronologically.

And, one piece of news: I have been working for some time on a website redesign which I am excited about. I believe that it will make this site more user-friendly (among other things, larger photos & cleaner layout), but keeping the same content and other elements that people enjoy. So stay tuned for that coming soon.

Happy New Year and all best in 2023.
