I'm entering a contest! Why don't you enter it, too?

Holidays often make us nostalgic for childhood: our own, most of all. Our lost childhoods, gone forever in a mist of memory and turning pages. . . . Looking back, I realize that the zeitgeist of my memory often depended on sheer serendipity. This realization has nothing much to do with any mantic sense; ataraxia is not a thing to be given a lick and a promise, no matter what our praxis might be. I especially love the memory of lying under my blankets, savoring my sapid, secret contraband of halvah, in the semilunar holiday bowl brought out only for December. No planned activity could ever have touched it.


Good luck to you, and good luck to me. I love contests.
