May the holidays provide you
peace, space for your own thoughts,
hope where none has been able to thrive,
enjoyment of people you love,
a little exercise,
and an awareness of the goodness of those around you.
And may you provide to others
extra helpings of that special side dish,
and certainty that, despite appearances to the contrary,
the future is going to be just fine.
I thank YOU for reading this, and for staying in touch.
ML, and happy holidays,
