This has been a difficult and confusing year for many, both in the political turmoil and in personal lives. Only the last dregs now remain in the bottle, don’t feel you must mull them over and take in the toxins. Instead, grasp a new bottle of champas, get ready to pop the cork and celebrate new beginnings. A fresh, unsullied, new year, awaits us. Take a good, mouth swilling, swig!
