We asked: What will you celebrate this holiday season?
As cliché as it sounds, this holiday season, I celebrate our human capacity to love. The holidays are such a symbolic time. At the root of almost all holiday symbols and traditions is a message of love. This year, I’ve been lucky enough to join the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida, and what a fantastic group of caring and LOVING people they are! This career move also brought me back to my home state of Florida, where I am able to more freely and easily share love with my family. And of course there’s my absolutely amazing husband who has been by my side for 14 years now. 2015 has really highlighted for me that wonderful line the Wizard says to the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz, “A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.” I am humbled by the love people gift me. This holiday I celebrate that precious gift and the people who share it.
