Thank you so much for reading my blog this year! It's been a year full of challenges and excitement. I think I changed a lot this year, settling down in some ways, mutable as ever in others. And I'm happy that 2013 is ending on a sweet note and that my Christmas will be one in nature and with loved ones.
I used to be more skeptical, to easily pooh-pooh the relationships that form through blogs and social media. I see them now as just another part of my reality. And even though the separateness that exists in all relationships is more magnified here, so is the special nature of connections and of using words to reach each other across unknown, unimagined distances.
As I do every year, I've renewed my sponsorship of our friends at The Donkey Sanctuary as a gift for those who read here. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, whatever form the holidays take for you, and that these days are full up with hope and joy. Hee-haw!
