We’re about to jump in the car to begin our family Winter vacation. I’ve just sent off the final draft of a book I’m co-authoring and my own words are ringing in my head…so-much-so that I’m reblogging them here, for my benefit as well as yours.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! That means the holiday season is just around the corner. Traditionally it’s a time when we get together with those we love…or those we have to love. Many will take time off work. Some will holiday at home. Others will holiday far away. Several will remain in their host country. Wherever in the world you are this holiday season, I encourage you to Unplug and Connect – really connect.
