I am having the best holiday season in a long time. My son Zak is visiting me here in Austin. I have not seen him for about 2 years. I started the holiday season by carving pumpkins for Holloween. I decided to give up my bah humbug attitude that I have had since moving to Texas. I miss being with my children and I miss them especially during the holidays. I suppose that I finally reached the conclusion that I have to move on to a new phase in my life and my children will be a part of my holiday celebration some of the time and not all of the time.
So this picture is another self portrait. Most of the time I am so serious, but when I took this picture I was really happy.
