Tonight is the first night of Hanukka, the second day of our annual Nutcracker weekend (five shows in three days, but only one left after tonight), and another reminder of how quickly time can pass by, particularly when children are involved.

The bashful girl who posed for this picture seven years ago has since become a beautiful and talented teenager. She’s poised beyond her years, and will leave elementary school behind in the coming months. I’ve never been prouder of anything else I’ve done in life.

May everyone spend the holidays in the company of the people or animals that they love. Our holiday seasons–like our lives themselves–are limited and finite, and every one of them is a gift, far better than anything we could wrap up and present to someone else.
