Happy Winter Solstice 2020, and Happy New Year 2021!

Robert and I embrace the supreme spirituality of nature. To us, the shortest day of the year is the reason for this seasonal celebration that dates to prehistoric times. Just as the physical world turns darkest is when it is most important to introduce nature and light into the home — green shrubs, candles, holly berries — to help us look forward to the inevitable seasonal renewal as the days once again start to lengthen, and the cycle of life begins anew.

Attached are a few pictures of the always-festive holiday displays featured throughout central Madrid.

Despite the insanity of much of this year, we are very thankful for everything we have — mostly our loving families and friends. Of course, we remain hopeful for global improvement in 2021, and wish love, health, and happiness to all.
