Happy New Year

I’ve been the Absent Blogger lately, and the Management is working to see what it can do about that for the coming year.

But I didn’t want New Year’s to pass without sharing a greeting, and expressing how happy and relieved I am that 2010 – a year of loss, risk, and fear for so many – that our family was truly lucky and blessed.

This picture – our Christmas card for the year – says it all.


The photographer, Stephanie Pullman, did a number of portraits of the boys when they were very young. I happened to run into her at a Long Beach Opera performance, and amazingly she recognized me.

It was that kind of year for us, and I hope that the luck we’ve had this year will continue into the next.

And I hope that each of you is as fortunate in the ways that matter to you.

Happy New Year, and lift a mug of coffee to absent companions.
