Merry Christmas from Alaska!

This is the time of year when we try to stop and think about peace and good will towards the entire world. So this message is not just about Christmas, or Alaska. It just so happens that we live in a part of the world that celebrates the year's end by reflecting upon these larger concerns in the context of the Christmas season.

Joe and I had a nice day shoveling snow, ice skating, visiting Gareth's solar-powered retreat, and talking to our families on the phone. We miss our folks and send them our wishes for a happy celebration of the season. But I want to add that I wish everyone, no matter who you are, whatever you may be doing, whether you are reading this or not, the possibility of peace and happiness for yourself and your life, right now, at this moment.

  1. Wow, wow, wow and wow. I can't think of a more fascinating place to live and I can't think of two other people I know who could pull this off. It's perfect and I am sure a life changing experience. You have a lot more courage than me....and I will follow your adventures with great interest.
