Trifecta: Nonfiction

Dear Scott,

I told you I can’t unlive the knife twisting ghost holidays. But every year with you is a year further away. And I trust your peaceful days and your level soul.


Truthfully, the winter holidays will never be any of my favorite things. But Scott and his family make them manageable for me, so that I can avoid clouding my children’s impressions of the season. And if the stories that come out of those gatherings would be boring to anyone who wasn’t there, then they must have been good days indeed.
