    I loved that you quoted Pericles …!! There is not enough attention paid to the wisdom of the Giants whose shoulders we stand on …..

    Merry Christmas !!

    Kindest Regards

  • Dear Ron,

    I once met you at a Mont Pelerin Society meeting in Prague.

    Congratulations on the good work you are doing at Mannkal.

    Merry Christmas,


  • Dear Ron

    Many thanks for your lovely festive poem and your kind Christmas wishes.

    Meeting you and your friends and family was one of the highlights of 2022. I hope we get a chance to meet again in 2023.

    With best wishes from London.


  • Dear Ron,

    Thanks for your Christmas wishes.

    Wish the same to you and your family too. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Stay safe and well.

    Kind regards,

  • Merry Christmas to you as well Ron. It was great to interact with you, however briefly, at MPS in Oslo. Your tribute to the young lady who recently passed was very moving. It seems you had a number of fruitful “conversations” with her. You are an accomplished poet my friend. Even your prose reveals it. Much like Mr. Churchill’s did.

    Serving Christ together,


  • Dear Ron,

    Happy Christmas to you too. Your energy and love of life is a continuing inspiration to us all. I love your poem – it gets to the heart of what is needed at the moment.

    Lots of love,


  • Dear Ron,

    Wishing you and your entire family a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Safe 2023!

    Your poem, is yet another gift for my brain that I will treasure and, with your permission, share with close friends and business associates. It is rare that anyone these days writes with so much meaning as you are. I wish I could respond with a poem but, unfortunately, I don’t have your gift so, I’ll have to resume to responding with a heartfelt Thank You!

    Friendship and conversation, with the conclusion sometimes left for another day is the gift that I received from you over the years and it definitely made me a better person.

    Kindest Regards,

  • Hi Ron, I always read the Mannkal messages when they arrive and am encouraging my children and grandchildren to do it as well.

    There are too many voices talking doom these days – when people actually need to look optimistically towards the future and use their brains to solve their problems and ask for help when they need it.

    Best wishes for Christmas and New Year. Stay well, mate.

  • Hi Ron:

    Thank you for your kind wishes for Christmas and
    the New Year. Also, for your Wise Festive Poem.

    I have not traveled the last two years and hope to
    change that in the coming year of the Rabbit.
    I hope our paths will again cross.

    Best wishes to you, Jenny and family for a very
    Merry Christmas
    and a
    Happy, Healthy and Prosperous
    New Year.

    Many Blessings,


  • Dear Ron,
    Thank you for such a beautiful and heartfelt poem.
    Much appreciate it.
    Wishing you and your beautiful family a very happy and prosperous New Year.
