Weekly Update

There was a moment watching the news on Wednesday night that between the coverage of North Korea and Cuba, I felt like it was the late '50s or early ’60s. At any moment, I was expecting Ricky Ricardo to walk in and say, “Lucy, I’m home!” Years ago, I went on a business trip to the Caymans. As soon as I got off the plane, I was approached by people offering trips to Cuba; it was like it was the Wild West. Hmmmm…does this mean Cuban cigars will be legal? I have a number of friends whose families were part of the flight from Cuba, and I look forward to hearing what they have to say about this. We had the Cold War years. Are we now into the Cyber War years?

Faithful Reader

We love the Christmas season! However, if you're like us, it may feel as though you were only just sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner! This year, I have been trying not to get caught up in the chaos that seems to accompany the holiday and instead to stay focused on the beauty and spriit of the season. Whether I'm reminiscing on the origins of a favorite ornament or reaching out to old friends with notes and calls, I am trying to strip out the gross commercialization and stay focused on keeping the meaning of the holiday.
