Far from those I call family I am bound in thought of those I miss and wish I could touch if for only a momentary hug, a kiss on the cheek and a smile eye to eye. May you know that you are loved more dearly than you may ever understand. Many people around the world, and so many of them my friends are desperate for a moment of connection, a moment to know that they are loved. Know this, if we have shared a momentary smile, no matter how long ago it was, my love still continues to flow to you like an ever-flowing fountain, and I carry you with me always.

May the love of the world surround and protect you. Go out, give what costs you nothing (a smile) and you will find that it shall return to you like medicine for your soul with exponential joyous.

Merry Christmas, may you feel love and peace,

James
