• Merry Christmas 2021

From Our Family to Yours…

Author James A. Michener, gave me all the permission I needed to mix work, play and life, and to just love and be friends with everyone. His words, at this special time of year, may free you in the way they freed me.

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.
James A. Michener

I added the emphasis, because I strive to be a master in “the art of living.”

May you be in the company of those you love, may you be healthy and happy and well, and may you be finding fulfillment in all you do. Happy Holidays.

And, in this short, 100-second video I offer a fun, and hopefully fulfilling challenge to you for the Whole Holiday Season!
