Sorry if you don’t get my bid decoration joke. I suspect it’ll be a phrase you’ll know well enough in the new year. I’m not sure how all of you are operating right now. For me, I’m looking at everything through the lens of whether it needs to be done this year or not. There are so many people I want to connect with and things I want to write about, but alas, some things will have to wait. One reason is I’m taking some time to visit Japan with my son. He aspires to be in linguistics and loves Japanese culture. I can’t wait to go on this adventure! I’m not one for OOO messages, but perhaps on this trip, I’ll give it a shot. I’m out this Friday through Christmas.

If I don’t connect with you before the end of the year, I want to thank all of you for letting us do what we do. Like every job, it has its moments, but when you know you’ve impacted the success of a company, a department, or an individual, it makes this job a blessing. Thank you.

Too few in this world have peace, let alone peace of mind. Light a candle and think about them and those you love. We hope that that provides you and others with a greater sense of peace as we move into 2024. We all could use it. Get well and be well. The best to you and yours in the new year.
