It’s Christmas Eve, and we’re starting to celebrate here in Athens. And if you’re reading this you’re family, old friends, or new friends who are interested enough to take time out to see what we’re up to. And for that we thank you. Christmas is a sentimental time for everyone, and you may wonder how and why we would choose to be in a strange place, without our family and friends for the holidays. Well, the short answer is that we are nomads.
In 1975 we left Lexington, Kentucky with two newly printed diplomas, and moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, which turned out to be the seed of wanderlust that has grown, flourished, and is still alive and well today. We love change, and experiencing new places, and this is what our life together has been about. The primary reasons that we have been so happy in our life of motion are the deep love we have for each other, our mutual respect, our partnership, and the unquestioning support of our families and friends.
We haven’t been out of the country for Christmas since our London days in the late 80s. For our Christmas in Athens, there will be some sad moments, and some funny stories about our past. We will talk about people we knew and wonder where they are, and most of all we will hope that everyone who is special to us is safe and happy for the holidays. We love you all and thank you for understanding our crazy lifestyle.
James and Terri
