Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Fighting the busyness:  The holiday season is often accompanied by even more busyness than what we usually experience during the year.  But it would be nice if it were a quieter time - a time to wait and prepare, a time to reflect and rejoice, a time to spend away from work and with family and friends. 

3 week break from this blog:  And so in the spirit of slowing down over the holidays, I will take a break from writing this blog for a couple of weeks.  I know that many of you will also be taking time off over the holidays, and I don't want to clutter your in-box with yet more e-mails to read come the first of the year.  I'll resume writing this blog in early January (unless there are any very time urgent subjects to communicate before then).  

Enjoy the holidays:  Until January, step back from your routines and enjoy the sights, smells, tastes, and meaning of this season, savoring each relationship, and remembering that each day we experience is a gift of grace.
