“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”

~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Ah, Christmas Eve.  Most likely you are either off work or enjoying a shortened day and will be home or with friends or family soon.  Please relish this opportunity for reflection on the amazing life you have, feel gratitude for your blessings and take time to notice the small pleasures around you.  I hope you have the opportunity to hear music, enjoy the written word, observe art and experience the intense pleasure of simple conversation with people you love.  To all my valued readers, I wish you and yours the best of the season.  Merry Christmas!
