Merry Christmas

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.


May you spread light to all you encounter this holiday season.

To my family and all my friends — “real” and cyber— have a wonderfully, joy-filled Christmas.

    I have really related to your seasonal posts over the last little whille, and as my big family and I get together tonight for appetizers/desserts and games, I’ll be focussed on the fun, laughter and memories we’re sharing/building, not on trying to make everything “perfect.” Thanks for the apropos remdinder!
