After a tumultuous few months and an acrimonious election, it’s nice to have the holidays to soften some of the rougher edges. Like most people, I have a busy schedule coming up. Perhaps unlike most people, my calendar includes full-time teaching, doctoral classes, and performing most nights of the week. It can be crazy, but I love my life and I’m appreciative of all the people who have let me do what I do and continue to support my career(s). Here’s to a month of good laughs, great celebrations, and healing connections.
