At the Changing of Seasons

winter and light
Christmas 2012 is approaching and I couldn't be more content. In 3 days yet I will have been here at UM for one year. Made a couple of friends, argued with several people that I've come to respect in spite of themselves and been given a chance to see the world from a different perspective. I let my passions about my religious beliefs get in the way of exercising my faith and though I still love and support the people of Israel without exception I have become more aware of the wrong done in the name of the State. While here I have come from a place so bad it was near the end of me to a place where I can see tomorrow again. Not a bad trade for growing a year older. The Mayans watched the stars and planets move across the sky and learned to predict when they would appear and disappear - they learned how to mark a change of seasons. I think we all do this in our own ways as we make our way through this life. I guess most of us generate more heat than light in the process but in the end we change with the seasons and we find ourselves in a different place. Hopefully a better place. As this season of light and hope comes round again I just wanted to wish everyone here at UM a time of tranquility and rest. A time of introspection but also joy. And I want to thank each and every one of you who have helped me along the way this past year.
