A very wise man once observed that as one gets older, time moves ahead at an ever-increasing pace. Regrettably, we've reached that stage in life where we can confirm this as true; 2009 felt like half a year packed with two years of newsworthy events. We expect that 2010 will bring more of the same, particularly in the Middle East. This means that Reuters correspondents will be busy in the New Year -- as will we.
Have a safe and happy holiday and we'll see you in 2010.
