and thank you all for being here! There's not enough words to express my gratitude for all your love and care and wisdom and humor!!

We're having a winter storm right now so it will be a white Christmas. Tomorrow, hopefully, we leave for Ft Collins, CO to spend Christmas with my husband's family, though leaving Wyoming in winter is always an unknown until you've done it. After Christmas I'll be heading to Prescott, AZ for a 5 day silent retreat with my teacher Joko Beck. To even think of traveling this year when last year at this time I was recovering from a liver resection and heading to 6 months of chemo is just a wonder.

So here's my holiday poem for you all this year. Enjoy! and see you all after the New Year.


If we are peaceful,

if we are happy,

we can smile,

and everyone in our family,

our entire society,

will benefit from our peace.
