In the spirit of tradition and the hope that, perhaps, I will add a tinge of cheery to this dreary blog, I am redecorating it with this holiday theme. With any luck, it will be the start of a more tolerable time. If nothing else, it’s a small way to contribute to the holidays without expending a great deal of energy. My enthusiasm is lacking.
I wish happiness and cheer to those celebrating, gentle comfort to those in pain, and peace to everyone, regardless of place or circumstance. Peace is, in the end, the only thing that will get us through.
