Goodbye to Greetings…

Part of my after-holiday traditions is to reread my Christmas cards. I love getting and giving cards all year round but Christmas greetings are special. I’m not sure if it’s the significance of the holiday – The fact that this might be the only time you hear from certain family members or friends – It’s… Continue reading Goodbye to Greetings…

Spirits Past Present and Future…

This was a Christmas not unlike Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. I was aware of the Spirits of Christmas all through the day. Ironically it started with the falling snow at midnight as Bing and company sang White Christmas; This was my visit from Christmas past, all those evenings after friends and family left and before… Continue reading Spirits Past Present and Future…

Helping my mother decorate her tree and clean… Continue reading Returns…

Giving – No Reason

Tis’ the season… Yes it’s the season for giving yet the unfortunate thing is most expect something in return. We’ve been conditioned by advertisers to buy, buy and buy so we can give. The problem is we’ve perpetuated a vicious circle of “gifting” that we’ve forgotten why we’re giving – Don’t say it’s Christmas! We… Continue reading Giving – No Reason
