Merry Christmas!

I leave my blog in the care of this kindly gentleman for the next few days as we travel to family. Certainly the spirit of Christmas as represented by Santa Claus in all his incarnations, embodies the best that is in us. Good cheer and generosity are the calling card he's left in the hearts of us oldsters who will always retain a bit of our youthful wonder and exictement during this beautiful season of giving and sharing. Safe travels if you're traveling and above all may you find peace and joy as you gather with those whom you Love. Merry Christmas. (That's my Christmas banner backlit by the Sun)

I've just finished reading Wallace Stevens "Sunday Morning". It reminds me so much of the texture of your photography! Just had to drop by and share it with you...

"Divinity must live within herself;
Passions of rain, or moods of falling snow;
Grievings in lonliness, or unsubdued
Elations when the forest blooms; gusty
Emotions on wet roads on autumn nights;
All pleasures and all pains, remembering
The bough of summer and the winter branch.
These are the measures destined for her soul."

Thank you Cuppa and AC - as you know I think you're a pretty special couple. Merry Christmas.

Bonita - That is one of the loveliest Christmas presents I am likely to receive - I'm very touched that you thought to share it with me.

Since you've been gone, Santa invited me in, told me to get a drink and make myself at home until you return. Hope you don't mind.

Rhea! Was that you I saw scampering out the window when we pulled into the driveway ? :0)
