Celebration and thanks

Dear Editor:On Tuesday evening (remember that snowstorm?) I was about to pull my bus out of Basalt. One of my passengers approached my door and quickly handed something to me. I said thanks and quickly headed for El Jebel. The visibility was poor and the road snowy.Later that evening, tired and eager to call it a night, I took a moment and examined what he had handed me. To my surprise, it wasn’t a lost bus pass or a complaint for the supervisors. At this busiest time of the year, on one of the darkest and snowiest nights, he had taken the time to give me a gift of the season, expressing his thanks.Now I want to take the time to thank this person for a gesture that not only surprised and pleased me, but reminded me to join in the holiday celebration. Here, in this valley, it is all too easy to let it slip by.To him, and to everyone else, I wish you all a wonderful holiday, a gathering of friends and family to share it with and a season of peace.Many thanks again.Hans HolzerAspen
