This week would not be complete if I didn’t revisit John Lennon’s most profound holiday greeting:

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love.
When we are afraid, we pull back from life.
When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer.
I want to wish everyone happy holidays and a happy new year!
Let’s hope it’s a good one without any fear.” 

—John Lennon

If you were thinking about making a contribution this year but you’re not sure where to give, please consider sending a donation to the  Westminster Community Care Center, where my awesome wife Nancy contributed many tireless hours as a volunteer nurse. This is a private, non-profit organization serving the working poor and uninsured of Ventura County, California. They also serve as a training site for high school students considering careers in healthcare. Click here to contribute.

Thank you so much for doing that, it means a lot!
Have a smart, safe and fun holiday!
Michael
