It really IS the most wonderful time of the year!


I was afraid I wouldn't catch The Season sizzle this year, but by golly, it smacked me this morning in the most sensational way.

I awoke to beauty that is the cacophony of brilliant fall leaves in the trees and on the ground surrounding my house; infused with gratitude for all the opportunities and people in my life, the promise of 2007 and for the oncoming days of that je ne sais quoi sparkling effervescence we enjoy this time of year.

I think perhaps knowing our troops should soon have some idea when they're coming home from Iraq (thanks to last week's US election results) plays a part in my happiness. Or knowing that my mother is getting much better after suffering some serious health setbacks recently. Or letting go of everything that hasn't worked in the past and welcoming everything that does-


I'm looking forward to getting and decorating a big tree and the house with friends, setting up the menorah, sharing quality time with my coachees, friends new and established, family and greeting Kelli's new baby Brock next month - who is the subject of a children's book I just wrote!

The music of the season fills my house pretty much year 'round, but now I can actually play it when other people are here so they don't think I'm one of "those" people -- you know, the sort who would also leave their outdoor Christmas lights up all year!

I don't do that! No .. well, not any more, anyway. My friend Will won't let me, but I know he'll be putting those lights up outside for me so I don't have to! ;-)

To quote Charlie Brown or Linus or Lucy or Peppermint Patty or Snoopy or one of the Peanuts gang: it's time to rejoice!
