Well, it’s that time of the year.
That time in which tradition has the strength to force us to look into ourselves and onto others, both those near or very near to us and those a little further away.
That time to look back at the crossroads we faced and the reasons why we chose the path we did knowing that when doing so we forever shut close all the others possibilities never to know where they would've lead us to.
That time to try to amend the whys and the whatnot that made those that at an arm’s distance have drifted away and departed in the ebbs and flows of human contact.
That time to put a real value on what we give to friendship remembering that we’ll always be in debt no matter how much we keep giving because what we receive in turn is simply priceless and that’s why we want to keep on giving.
In other words, that time for our Christmas break.
Using a Portuguese saying, may you receive in double all that you wish for us!
