  • If there was anything that I came to understand more profoundly this year it would have to be the power of instinct: mine, our animals and the forces of ideologies of which I agree and disagree.
    I reread my year end column from 2011, which reminded me of where I was 12 months ago; it helps me better appreciate where I am today.
    It seems we didn’t do too badly, after all, and it’s all because both Andy and I recognize the power of instinct.

  • FRIDAY, Dec. 21

  • One of my favorite parts of Christmas is attending the Christmas Eve service at my church.
    With the lights dimmed, candles soften the sanctuary, soften faces, quiet the hearts of the people who have come.
    Some come harried and hassled. Others come burdened and broken. All come seeking something, seeking peace.
    At my church, it’s our tradition on Christmas Eve to sing of peace and silence. As we hold candles we sing, “Peace, peace, peace on earth and good will to all.”
