Happy Holidays
December 22nd, 2011

Too busy and feeling too frivolous to write much this week. Just want to send best wishes for the holidays to anyone who reads the blog. Christmas in these parts is an extended stretch of good will and good times. There are more parties to attend than most (other) Canadians ever have in a lifetime. I love that about living here. It’s all about the people—friends connecting and catching up, valuing our astonishing privilege and good fortune. Academics can be such whiners, but all of that tends to vanish around now. There’s way too much to feel good about. I’ll be back at this page after a couple of weeks of bloglessness. Best wishes to all!
