Merry Christmas 2005

This image is also available as a Desktop

Today's song is Merry Christmas Darling, by The Carpenters from 1970.

Good times with friends and family abound throughout my life as the winter holidays are winding down. Cards and messages have been received and sent to all in one form or another.

It's been a wonderful year for me. I got closer to a few people in that time. I discovered another pathfinder last January and that was a cool surprise for me. I contributed a lot of time and effort to my volunteer activities [1; 2]. My writing here on this site increased dramatically. Some of you wrote back to let me know your thoughts. Thank you for that feedback and commentary.

Sadness made its appearance twice this year for me. I lost my friend and former boss, Walter J. Strauss, a man who influenced my thinking to a great extent. I lost my youngest relative, Katie, just a few weeks ago to cancer. My daughter read my eulogy at Katie's service in my absence and I hear it was well received. Thanks, Jenny.

Sherry and I took a few trips together to celebrate the times of our lives together [1; 2; 3].

I took two solo trips this year. In April I visited my friend and mentor, Gene Weed, in Cottonwood, Arizona. In September I spent ten days back in Illinois, closing circles in some cases and getting back in touch with my friends, family, and places in my midwestern past.

I wish all who stop by here, a happy holiday message whether you celebrate at this time of year or not. :-)

I look forward to 2006 where I know there will be changes. Those are topics to write about in future messages, for sure. Stay tuned...
