Our relationship was innocent and pure. I think often that he will be 24 forever. As time passes and I grow older, I can live life for better or worse.

We can wake ourselves up by increasing our oxygen level by breathing deeply. Or conversely, we can put ourselves to sleep with a kind of meditation of shallow breathing, and repeating silently the words to the rhythmic "in" and "out" like a mantra.

This is my first Christmas without my mother. Mom died suddenly in mid-September, three months before her 75th birthday. For mom, the holidays were less about Santa than stress. The yuletide anxieties began around Labor Day, when she'd fret about finding the perfect gift, and finding the time to find the perfect gift, and whether she'd bought enough perfect gifts.
