Under Santa Fe Skies

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays

Every day, I am filled with gratitude for the friends I have in my life. I’m talking about head shaking astonishment that I should be so fortunate. As the poet David Whyte wrote: “The ultimate touchstone of friendship is not improvement, neither of the self nor of the other, the ultimate touchstone is witness, the privilege of having been seen by someone and the equal privilege of being granted the sight of the essence of another, to have walked with them and to have believed in them, and sometimes just to have accompanied them for however brief a span, on a journey impossible to accomplish alone.”

So this holiday season, I wish you all the gift of friendship, and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

With love,
