I love the holidays. Our family together, who come from all over the world, and as close as down the block. The food (mostly the cookies). Averting the naughty list and receiving the beautiful gifts on my nice list. Santa brought me a fab new laptop of which I am writing this post on. Maj bought me a stunning amethyst stone, for physical protection and mental clarity, hanging from a perfect 13" gold chain. I am so grateful and in a humble position to give. So, I give thanks And compassion. And the universal reflection that as life changes quickly around us, let us be kind to one another, and pliable to bend to the Earth's evolution. Here's to an undoubtedly adventurous 2012.
