May I suggest a second tradition?
'Leonard singing "O Christmas Tree" (more or less)'

Well, another year has almost come and gone by us again. I’m simply grateful to be able to be here and say that! Thank you Jarkko and Eija and family for all you do here for us. I hope your home renovating is finished and you are taking it easy!

To the Forum Family and one and all around the world –
May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.

.... “If you’ve lost it, and it’s easy to lose it,
May you locate in your hearts the blessings of peace”....


I had just finished designing my card for this year when I remembered a poem Leonard had written many years ago about a dove and I thought it wouldn’t go astray here too. Besides, I love the inference of the last two sentences :)

The Dove
I saw the dove come down, the dove with the green twig,
the childish dove out of the storm and flood. It came
towards me in the style of the Holy Spirit descending.
I had been sitting in a cafe for twenty-five years
waiting for this vision. It hovered over the great
quarrel. I surrendered to the iron laws of the moral
universe which make a boredom out of everything desired.
Do not surrender, said the dove. I have come to make a
nest in your shoe. I want your step to be light.
