Enjoying Easter

Welcome to Easter weekend 2019. For many this is a time celebrating new life and renewal of life, rooted in Christian theology. For others it is a time to mark the coming of Spring and the new life that is exhibited by the changing of the seasons. For still others it is a time to join with family and friends and celebrate whatever the Easter Bunny may bring.

This year, in the Wyatt household, it is also a time of reuniting, as we celebrate our biannual family reunion. We are in Mesa, Arizona, this weekend, getting together with my parents, siblings, and everyone's families. I mentioned the reunion in this space last week, but now the festivities are in full swing.

However you choose to celebrate this weekend (and whatever you choose to celebrate this weekend), I hope that it is a joyous time for you and yours.

My best to you.

—Allen
