Tonight is Christmas Eve, and also the final night of Hanukkah. I will be going away for the next few days to take a well-deserved rest, so there won’t be any more articles posted for a little while. Whatever your religious persuasion is, I hope you have a wonderful holiday. The header illustration at the top of this article is deliberately intended to be multicultural, so whatever tribe of humans you choose to belong to, my best wishes to you for a peaceful, restful and fulfilling time in the next few days.
When I return it will be close to the end of the year, and I’m planning to do a number of year-end-wrapup, best-of type posts showcasing some of the articles I’ve done in 2014 that I’m especially proud of. Carrying on a tradition from last year, I’ll also be presenting my blog awards! (My blog awards are real awards–you don’t have to pass them on, nominate 5 others or anything like that). Then, ready or not, we’re off to 2015!
