Let it snow

Back in January, I wrote about the death of a friend. With a new year about to begin, I offer this image from his life: Imagine, if you will, a jolly overweight elf and his teen-aged son stripped naked, racing each other around their house through several inches of new snow. Hear their laughter, their curses, and their shouts. The lesson? If we are not happy now, it is our own damn fault.

Ein Rauch verweht, ein Wasser verrinnt, eine Zeit vergeht, eine Neue beginnt.

Das Glück ist immer da…
weniger Rede, mehr Gedanken,
weniger Interessen, mehr Gemeinsam,
weniger Wissen, mehr Urteil,
weniger Zwiespalt,mehr Charakter.

mit lieben Grüßen und Wünschen in Verbundenheit Jasmin

Thank you, Jasmin, and my best wishes to you.

And if I have any wish for the coming year, it is that we all, at least for a brief moment, set aside our foolish intellectual armor. Clothing is optional. Just remember to eat right and drink a lot of orange juice, because it’s cold out there.

Yes. Say, are those clinking glasses I hear?
