Happy Christmas

In this season of celebration and merriment, taking the time to pause and reflect on the precious and sacred nature of life can be a gift we give ourselves.

Our interconnected world remains in the midst of a pandemic that has taken far too many lives much too early. Yet even in the face of the omicron variant we are making progress against this deadly virus. Many of us will be able to gather for a few days this season, something we took for granted until last year’s global health crisis shut down all but the most essential of travel. We have been able to hold friends and loved ones close more frequently in recent months, providing that essential human touch.

May this year’s season — in whatever way you celebrate — bring you happiness, help you treasure what is important in your life, and build hope for a future where love trumps hate.

Happy Christmas, and best wishes for 2022.

From our home to yours

More to come…

I am David J. Brown (hence the DJB) and I originally created this personal blog more than ten years ago as a way to capture photos and memories from a family vacation. After the trip was over I simply continued writing. Over the years the blog has changed to have a more definite focus aligned with my interest in places that matter, reading well, roots music, and more. My professional background is as a national nonprofit leader with a four-decade record of growing and strengthening organizations at local, state, and national levels. This work has been driven by my passion for connecting people in thriving, sustainable, and vibrant communities.
