Happy Holidays Rex,

I guess you are who I must thank for getting me interested in writing a weblog (or blame as the case may be). I looked at your writing, and saw what could be done. Sure there were other bits of inspiration, but I didn't know them, so had no real frame of reference. Even when my writing sucks, I am still having a tremendous amount of fun with it.

I always love your fiction posts, of course, but am also pleased that you are willing to post the things that you are interested in, and let those with like interests come to you. I think this is a good way to go about it.

I was happy to see you a couple of times over the last year. It is so hard to coordinate things like that living is such separate parts of the country. You seem to be a happy sort of person right about now. That's always good.

I hope that in the future we will be able to get together on a more frequent basis.

Happy Holidays, and I hope the New Year is even better than the last.
