To my family, I love you all - happy holidays and hope the New Year blesses us all with beautiful things. Here's to life and good will. Also, Happy Birthday to you Robert, I couldn't think of someone better to both share my big day with (the day after Christmas nonetheless!), but also to turn the seasoned year of thirty with this year.
