Happy holidays! This has been a hectic year for me—I might do one of those “end of the year” posts, with lists of the things I want to remember about 2012, or I might not; I don’t know that people get much out of reading them, but I do get a lot out of writing them. Either way, it’s been a pretty great year for me, both personally and professionally. So don’t let the grumpy-looking gargoyle fool you; I’m in high holiday spirits, just in a sleepy kind of way. Like all Alaskans, I’m looking forward to winter solstice and the [beginning of the] return of the light. And I’m looking forward to 2013, which is already becoming a pretty hectic year, as well, believe it or not.
I hope that your Solstice, Manufactured Mayan Apocalypse, Saturnalia, Pancha Ganapati, Christmas, Yule, Kwanzaa, Watch Night, and New Year (pick and choose the one(s) you celebrate) are full of warmth and good cheer!
