Countdown to 2019: A Gift


Whenever I need a quick moment of levity, I open up Rudy Francisco’s book of poetry, Helium. It always sets me right. 

On Christmas Day, the day of merry and gift giving and suspended reality, I love the idea that there is a gift in accepting our humanity, our mistakes.  In being honest with ourselves and embracing all that we are. The good, the bad the ugly.  Your gift is yourself. 

Happy Holidays!
