I am home. Or rather, I am about as home as I can get right now. My brother is out of town and I have the full run of his apartment in San Francisco for a few days, and am quite delighted. Today is my day to overcome the jetlag from my long journey back from Australia, and will include probably an overabundance of time spent online, but with the sun out and Golden Gate park nearby, I have a long walk on my agenda. Back in high school I experimented with running, was part of the cross country team. Throughout university I threw my shoes on my feet and occasionally kicked my legs back and forth at a faster than walking speed. As of late my life has been devoid of any such endeavors, and I am still in need of proper shoes, but I have thoughts to ramp up the aerobic activity in my life. I also have a few phone calls to make, but as I am not only tired, but fighting off a cold (or rather, babying my cold with warm fuzzies of life like baths, blankets and beverages).

No, I have not forgotten. Usually the fault of my spinning around and possibly appearing to neglect things is an overactive mind rather than one which sits too still and forgets. But I always do get around to everything I intend to. And right now I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday time. Today is Christmas eve day in the USA and in Australia, Christmas has already come. Merry Christmas everyone. If you celebrate, or even if you just use the time to relax or see friends. I hope you have a great holiday season.

I had been telling people how excited I was to spend Christmas all on my own, and apparently that is a less than normal predicament to be thrilled about. But I have been saying this with full sincerity. I missed Hanukah entirely this year - I received two emails wishing me well which brought a smile to my face, but somehow that holiday lacked true presence in my world this year. So this year I will embrace Christmas in my own way. Holidays are about happiness anyway, and best spent doing what you enjoy. Usually I feel they are about family and friends, too, but with my traveling lifestyle I am continually surrounded by friends and am currently enjoying the beginnings of my holiday solo style.  Christmas day on my own, with maybe some Chinese take-out Jewish style and a few movies, will do me well. 

And to the rest of you - celebrate however you feel fit. :) And enjoy! Merry Christmas.
