(TITLE: Quotation from Christmas card from Chris and Amy)
Basking in comfort and joy
With family and friends.
Good food, comfortable banter,
Relaxation, and easy laughter.
Next several days full of more
Friends and more family times,
Culminating tomorrow in
Rejuvenating days away from work,
With stacked tasks ever looming.
Stay in each moment, lean back
Into hours of puttering and dreaming.
Gently bid adieu to eventful 2013;
Looking forward to starting anew
In 2014's 365 glowing opportunities.
Love and joy and equality and play.
