Time with family is a precious thing. It’s sad that, often, it is only truly found after tragedies, at least for large families which are geographically spread out.

Also, I was introduced to this poem today: Remember Me by Anthony Dowson, quite beautiful.

Tomorrow, two weeks vacation from work for the winter holiday comes to a close, as well as bidding farewell to my mother-in-law. It was a wonderful break and a wonderful visit filled with time spent with people I care about. But as always I am eager for the new challenges at work and to get back to being a professional Wizard.
