This year, for some reason, I am feeling particularly grateful for this odd little virtual community here. I've never met most of you who read and comment on this blog (and whose blogs I read and comment on), and probably will never meet many of you. But a bunch of you have come to feel like a real presence in my life, voices I look forward to hearing from every so often. I've been introduced to some damn good poets and poems, and some of you make me laugh a heck of a lot.
Many thanks, friends. And whether or not you celebrate Christmas, I hope this winter day finds you in a warm, comfortable, well-fed place, with people you care about.
