In the dim light of morning here, I’m thinking we’ll all wake up to varying ways of observing the day. Whether or not yours is a spiritual celebration today, there’s something to the collective tradition and cultural pause.
We might gather with ones we love or send our greetings from afar. We might share our meal and company today with strangers in either friendly camaraderie or personal service. We might spend the day in intentional or ambivalent solitude. Whatever your circumstances and celebration, however, I hope the day offers you the chance to recharge your physical self, to enjoy the experiences and connections that fill you, to honor the good in your life past and present.
I know I’m grateful today for my health, for my family and friends, for valued work and for the gracious and inspiring community here. With best wishes to each and every one of you, happy holidays….
