While the world continues to march forward, I invite you to take a moment for quiet at the end of this year. Make the time you spend with family really count, even if it’s thru a plexiglass panel or a video camera lens. Have conversation. Listen. Hug often, laugh a lot, and look for the good in everyone, even if (when?) they ask you annoying questions or drive you crazy.
Diwali and Hanukah are over, Christmas and Kwanzaa and multiple New Year’s celebrations are yet to come, and joy is available to each of you, every day. Like Santa Claus, it’s as real as you believe it to be! I wish you the happiest of holidays.
Thank you for believing in me and the work that I do.
