Oh boy Oh boy, it’s Holiday Time. No matter your religion or beliefs this is the Sparkliest time of the year. The music, the clothing, the stories, events, the children, the food, the parties, the family togetherness, the renewal of faith, the forgivings, and the thanksgivings. (That says it all without a verb.) Even if you are alone at this time, you can see or hear it, you have good memories of loved ones, of your youth, old friends, mostly good times and the ability to think! “Cognito ergo sum” said Descartes, “I think , therefore I am” . Hooray for all of the I ams this season. Long thinking to us all.
