Christmas Day has lost much of its magic in our cravenly materialistic culture, but if you look, there's still a lot of magic to be found. The Christmas myth still holds within it the potency of the magic contained within a gift and the act of giving. It's not a mistake that the story of the Three Wise Men bestowing gifts on the infant Jesus has survived for two-thousand years.
It is with this in mind that I thought to ask myself, What was the main gift of my year? And I came readily to an answer: in 2017, I gave myself the gift of myself, and man do I appreciate it.
And from that answer, it was easy to ask myself what I hope to give next year: Next year, I give myself to the world.
