Families are gathering. It has snowed outside, and a muffled silence announces that many people are staying in. WISN is playing carols, one after another. We have exchanged gifts with our neighbor. Many beautiful cards, many with family photos, are lined up in our dining room. For the Christian world, it is Christmas; and everything feels different.

Everyone seems to have lightened up, and a warm friendliness washes over the land. Everyone (except Derrick) is wishing everyone, "Merry Christmas." How cool would it be if it were always like this?

So, before the magic of the season reverts to our every day push and shove, please accept my wish that you and yours have a wonderful holiday and good health in the new year.

Paddle safe...
