  • Eddie Izzard at Foxwood

  • June vacation in Quebec City with mah sweetie

  • August vacation in NYC with mah sweetie and my daughter

  • Something Rotten on Broadway

  • Sabbatical from teaching for the fall semester that made all the writing possible

  • Attending the first screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens with mah sweetie, who went to the very first screening of Star Wars back in 1977, and was one of the first people in line

  • One of the best Christmases ever with three generations of my family

I am so grateful to the friends and family who made this all possible.
