"Because of the unforgettable Christmas Carol book, most associate Dickens more with Christmas than Easter. Yet Dickens had great expectations not just of Christmas but also of Easter. In most of Dickens’ novels, there are Easter moments of unexpected hope, transformation and breakthrough. Dickens rarely leaves us stuck in despair."
Rev. Ed Hird, "Charles Dickens' great expectations at Easter," North Shore News, March 7, 2016
I hope you've all had a lovely day!
By the way, I want to apologize for not having posted much lately. I have some major projects taking up a lot of time (about which I hope to tell you more, one of these days). But rest assured, this blog will keep going! Even when I can't post every day, I will post as often as I can.
