HIStalk Practice Musings

Happy New Year! It’s nice to be back in the HIStalk saddle after the holiday break. (Though I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting to return to work amidst our first snowfall of the year!) I hope that, like me, you were able to find ample time for rest, relaxation, and reflection on how wonderful life truly is, despite the craziness 2021 brought our way.

I was able to put in some ample couch time, catching up on When Calls the Heart, Friday Night Lights, and Gilmore Girls. My local library has been slow to process requested books over the last several weeks, so I’ve turned to an oldie but goodie, “The Lord of the Rings.”

While I watched plenty of Christmas movies (Hallmark and the classics), I stumbled across Fisherman’s Friends, a gem of a movie based on the true story of 10 singing fishermen from Cornwall. Being a fan of the Cornish Poldark book and television series, I was especially keen on seeing modern-day Cornwall in all its provincial glory. Come to find out there’s a companion book that I’ll add to my must-read list for 2022.
