Dear friends,

As the holiday season is upon us, and so many forces are at play in our lives - the blessings of our family and friends, the uncertainties of nature and politics, the promise of so many inventions, and the challenges of adjusting to our "new normal."

It's a tall order, but we're up to the task.

We are now in the midst of our longest night, a sacred night for those who are believers.  

Tomorrow - the days will be begin to grow longer again.

May this transitional moment bring you blessings, peace, and optimism, tonight and all through the new year.

Happy Winter Solstice 2021 - 

With love,
