Dec 21, 2014: Good friends,
Happy Solstice! Here's hoping this turn of the seasons finds you flourishing, wherever you are. If you've been on this list for a while, you know it can sometimes be a while between updates. This just-broken silence, though, has been over six months in length... read my words from the road
