Lina moved to Chicago. Logan moved across town in Boise. Melissa and I are without our beloved kids in the house. So we text ’em, FaceTime ’em, call ’em, and look forward to visits. The Christmas card this year still shows the family together, made possible by the miracle of technology. Not to mention the miracle of finishing the carving without gouging my thumb or cutting through a necessary detail in the portrait, like a nose or an eye or a frosted doughnut Christmas ornament.
