Fortunately I've made a recovery with just enough time to cobble together some gifts for my family.
I hope this message finds you and yours healthy. And, just in case your health isn't something to brag about at the moment, I hope the holidays give you ample opportunities to enjoy this bizarre, incredible and sometimes baffling experience that is life as a human on the planet Earth. I for one enjoy the gaudy decorations, the blinking lights, the holiday sweater vests...
The pageantry can be a great distraction from the various woes that plague us.
