Thoughts for the season
jack santa
"It's tempting to look back and think that people had it easier in some earlier, golden era. But many of our troubles were regularly encountered by our ancestors. War and sickness are constants. Financial worries continue through the ages. Troublesome relatives have graced both ancient and modern tables. But at the turning of the year, if we heed the call of that special moment, we take time to consider the things that are most important to us.

We gather with family and friends. Often, there's a reckoning. Children are taller. Some people are gone. We eat, drink, play a game (or watch one), perhaps sing.. and recommit to each other. The memories we make at these special times of year can bring us through the times that have always tried men's souls."
