“If you light a lamp for someone else it will also brighten your path.”  Buddha

I wish you a happy and healthy holiday season full of joy and laughter.

May we begin the new year with hope, health, and healing.

May we value and treat each other with civility, kindness, and appreciation.

May we collaborate and resolve our differences.

May we have a positive impact where we can.

And, as Rumi wrote, may we “be a lamp, a lifeboat, or a ladder” to those in need.

May your learning be sweet- and safe.



Tips will return on January 10, 2022.
