“To be far from the madding crowd is to be mad indeed.”
“Walking into the crowd was like sinking into a stew – you became an ingredient, you took on a certain flavour.”
“The nice thing about crowds is that someone can throw a bottle and you don’t take it personally.”
Where are the crowds? There ought to be crowds. Send in the crowds.
With warm wishes to you for a Happy New Year
and a much better 2021.
