Thursday, 18 December 2008


I'm in Jamaica, on vacation, and loving it. Christmas and New Year's are that much more special when I'm here.

I've met, and have been spending time with, my niece - she's a sweet little person; been hanging out with a few friends and totally enjoying being with my family.

Heard I missed about 5cm of snow that fell the day after I left Ontario. Also heard that there will be heavy snowfall tomorrow.

Oh well. Look at that, eh?

In life, always have something to look forward to

I'm not sure when I first read that quote, but it was a long time ago. We're talking probably ten years or more. Over these many moons, it still becomes new with every use.

That's how...well, that's part of the way I live my life - always having something to look forward to.

Right now? Christmas with the family from which I am. For the first time in a long time (read: two years) we'll be together, LS. Can hardly wait. We've been talking about the good, bad and the indifferent - especially these past few weeks.

We look, in amazement, at the old things; look, in anticipation, delight and hope, toward the new things that are already upon us.
