With Thanksgiving over, it's time to write my holiday letter. This year, I'm trying something different. As we approach the annual season of gift giving in America, I've been reflecting on the most meaningful gift I ever gave and received. Equally important, now that I'm retired and in the senior phase of my life, I don't need any more gadgets, nor do the people in my friendship circle!
