[Coastal] A Christmas Note

Pardon the bandwidth, but this is probably the best
way for me to get this out.

There are those who would say that this is a month
late or even a few days early, but I think this is a
better time.  I am sending this out to all those who
have made this last year one of the best in my memory.
 I will not name names, as I will surely leave some
out and mis-spell others.

You have taken me into your arms as a friend.  You
have given me good and well meaning advice when I
sought it.  You taught me many things, some at the end
of a stick of rattan (LOL). You have allowed me into
the kitchens.   I have read the definitions from the
Corpora, but I have watched you and learned the
meaning of the words I read.  I have learned what
service and chivalry are from watching you.  You have
given me great honors along the way, both by awards
and your friendship.  I have a journey ahead of me
that will be long and difficult as I seek to learn
more, but I know with you around it will be easier as
I will have help and support along the way.  So...

First, I send you all my thanks for what you have done
for me over the year (and the one before).

Secondly, I wish you all the peace and happiness of
this season and the desire that you can carry it
throughout the coming year.
