As old as the hills.
As fresh as the dew.
As sure as the sun rises and sets, light and darkness engage in an eternal struggle.
This time of the year, when its seems nighttime might last forever, we find ways to beat back the darkness.
Always have. Always will.
Just outside our door.
In our homes.
…and in our hearts.
…friends and family…
…and more stories.
So does chocolate.
Sweetness of any kind, really.
And a sense of adventure, even if it’s just in your own mind.
When in doubt, add an extra pinch of spice.
May the New Year bring you fun and adventure, sweetness and spice.
