On behalf of Steve and myself, I want to wish you all a very wonderful holiday season filled with laughter, love, beautiful memories and fantastic photos!

I thought I would share with you all my favorite poem, which I believe embodies the feeling we all want to cherish at this time of year.

“A Note”

Life is the only way
to get covered in leaves,
catch your breath on the sand,
rise on wings;

to be a dog,
or stroke its warm fur;

to tell pain
from everything it’s not;

to squeeze inside events,
dawdle in views,
to seek the least of all possible mistakes.

An extraordinary chance
to remember for a moment
a conversation held
with the lamp switched off;

and if only once
to stumble on a stone,
end up soaked in one downpour or another,

mislay your keys in the grass;
and to follow a spark on the wind with your eyes;

and to keep on not knowing
something important.

— Wislawa Szymborska
(Translated, from the Polish, by Stanislaw Baranczak and Clare Cavanagh.)

Merry Christmas, everyone!
