Abruptly, the sound ceased…

“Slowly, but surely, they drew their plans against us”

I am reminded in the moment of War of the Worlds, the HG Wells classic from 1897 and furthermore the Jeff Wayne musical, narrated by Richard Burton. For, after a year of relative quiet and no major events (All quiet on the Eastern front), the aliens building their machines on Horsel common are almost ready with the next phase, I sense.

2023 was a year of big gains and big losses for me – in every sphere of my life. Yet, I enjoyed it all. Sometimes the journey trumps arrival at the destination. Let us see what 2024 brings and face it with alacrity.

Oh, almost forgot to mention, Gold, Silver and Freedom, as relevant as ever, is now available in Germany.
