Just a short post to say "Happy Holidays" in any, or no particular, tradition you choose to celebrate them in. I for one, have learned to value friends and chosen family greatly over the past year and look forward to spending time with them. I also look forward to chatting long-distance on the phone with my father and step-mother despite that I am not out to them yet (one New Year's resolution to make).
I get very nostalgic and misty-eyed this time of year and its all good because it opens my heart. Much appreciated.
Again, all the best to my readers over the holidays and in the new year!
