I wish you a healthy and prosperous new year. May your study efforts be rewarded by a new European job.
The end of the year is usually traditionally the time to think about our future and our approach to all things. For me the last year was a period of sorrow and hibernation, but the sun is again shining, life keeps going on and I am now confident enough to promise for 2009 some new linguistic editions of your favorite book.
Enjoy your holidays but do not forget that only the well prepared will succeed.
