I hope all of you had a good Christmas and/or Winter solstice,

each in your own way, even if it’s a peculiar way, even if Christmas causes you to eat strange things you wouldn’t normally touch. I hope the festivities induced you to drink more than you normally do during the day and that this departure from habit, in turn, encouraged you to kiss those you don’t normally kiss although you want to. I also hope that those of you who normally misunderstand this kind of advice had the sense to keep your hands off your sister-in-law. This is a celebration of peace and an act of belief that the sun will return, not a time to look for trouble.

Myself, I have already forgiven those who gave me presents I don’t deserve.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.
