This is the wreath we hang up every year... no cedar boughs or big red bow... but I think it conveys what the season ought to be all about. (Yes, it's a hula hoop.)
|Peace, baby... make love, not war.|
The house is also dripping with good old fashioned tiny white lights this year... you know, the non-LED kind that make our power meter spin a little faster?
I've been fiddling around with creating a Christmas card this year. Definitely a peace theme... but otherwise, a little non-traditional in terms of other classic Christmas colors and designs. Some of you *may* get some version of this card this year, if I get my act together. Until then... here's a little work-in-progress sneak peek:
HAPPY CHRISTMAS, everyone.... may the PEACE of this season descend upon you and make you see what's important in life! Give a little more to the homeless shelter, or the food bank. Take the time to watch It's a Wonderful Life... not just once, but a couple of times. Do some yoga. Put on the soundtrack to the Charlie Brown Christmas for a little instant joy and calm. Call the ones you love and tell them what they mean to you. Stress not... for in a few short weeks, it will be a new year. Start deciding how it will be different right now.
Oh... and PS... WAR IS OVER, IF YOU WANT IT.
