To all my readers, regular and occasional, near and far, young and old, known to me or not—thank you for reading, and for your company, your loyalty, your comments and your kindnesses in 2015. And Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Satisfactory Solstice, Frank Festivus, or [insert greetings for holiday of your choice] to you in this season. Bless you, and may God, fate, and the dice of chance let you and your loved ones thrive throughout the coming year.
All the best,
P.S. The illustration is from the Classic TOP essay "In Memory of a Shutter-Bug (A Christmas Story)."
