These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age (55). I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live in the burbs and work in the city (Chicago, the best city in the world). I'm an aunt, a friend and a colleague. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

This week's challenge: Using exactly 33 words, compose a pithy summary of your feelings about the holidays.
This Christmas is new. The old ways are gone and that’s sad,
not bad. For our family traditions were familiar, not happy. In their place are
friends and their astonishing love and support.
