Letter: Toast the holidays

Toast the Holidays’

Like the season? Many people do

with all the fruitcakes and fancy stew.

Fudge, nuts, marzipan, wonderful cheeses,

Someone’s palate certainly pleases;

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.


A gazillion lights on each downtown store,

caroling, sing-a-longs, and parties galore.

The jolly cards from far away places

filled with our friends’ kids’ smiling faces,


Even some cards from folks we barely know

in wintery towns with 20 feet of snow.

Gifts that are fun, gifts that are fine,

tied neatly with bows and colorful twine;


Thoughts of kindness and doing what’s right,

trudging through darkness seeking the light.

Called from ourselves by bells softly ringing,

the voices of children sweetly singing;


And family, loved ones both far and near

usually heightens the holiday cheer.

So a toast to you and those you hold dear

Good health, joy, and peace for the coming year.
