The end of year is coming and wishes and greetings are sent out. Connected over invisible network, our members, which are in many cases also friends, are spinning the web of our relations. Since we are a world-wide organization, let us try to forget our religions, races, nationalities, prejudicies and other barriers and leave the way to better understanding.

Let us use all our best qualities and attributes and offer them to all the others and let us hide all our worst ones and leave them hidden somewhere under the ground. But, of course not in the caves! On the contrary, let the CAVES, that I think all of us love, help us connect our collective web with unbreakable joints.

This is my wish for you.
