So Christmas is blessing us with hope, love and song again in 30 days. What am I going to do differently? I know what I'm NOT going to do...I'm not going to get caught up in all the cliche conversation about how cold it's getting, how much traffic there is, how broke they are, how Uncle Marvin always ruins the holidays, why Christmas is such a hush, hush in the public schools etc. etc...I don't want to be comfortable to that noise what-so-ever! We reap what we sow. Shall we carry on?

I want to surround myself with soothing pillars of scented candles and satisfy my short moments with flickering light. I want to hear songs celebrating the season of slumbering trees. I want to read peoples pain and suffering and offer my light to strengthen their spirits and allow their souls to breathe. I want to eye color as I walk into a room and feel its vibration; focus on its gift. Have you ever?

This will be my December.

Where's the flowers and fine china?

I have these slides but I haven't a projector, so I have be painfully shrinking myself enough to get a glimpse of where I came from and the family that provided the colors of my memories.
