I am back in Texas for two weeks, and waited until after Christmas to do my first post. I’ve gotten a bit reaquainted with my son, Luke, who is more fun than I remember. It is amazing what 8 months will do to a person, especially the pint sized portions.

I hope everyone is having as good of a Christmas as I am, surrounded by friends and family, with lots of good food and exactly what I (reasonably) wanted for Christmas. No world peace or 42 inch 1080p HD widescreen TV with 120hz refresh under the tree, but I got the complete works of Plato and some other books, which I’ve wanted for years. Also, this is the first Christmas in which my child has given me a tie. It has penguins and snowflakes on it. I never thought I’d love being so stereotypical.

I found those Philosophy and Wikipedia articles in my barracks room, which got internet and a international phone line right before I left for Texas, so expect more often posts and perhaps even a call after I return to Germany on the 4th.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year… or Froehe Weinachten und ein glucklich neue Jahr. I need to improve my German…
