Every year as I sit down to send out my Christmas cards, the list gets smaller. Several years ago I started culling the list, excising people whom I never heard from, or those that only communicated sporadically online. I donít think the list has had any new additions in at least five years now. The circle is shrinking, not expanding, which I suppose is normal at this stage of life, but do I keep hoping it is going to expand somehow. Or at least, stay steady for a year or two, as this list was so small to begin with.
