Long time no see!!
I couldn't let the year come to a close without saying something...
I see people feeling festive while I deal with various matters
that make me anything but festive.
I dare stop for a moment contemplating my life to just look at Life itself.
A last minute thing
so I can wish you all the best this world may offer.
bring in the tree and the turkey,
let the fire crackle and the lights blink.
Time to be merry!!
The picture above is by N.M. Hinshellwood,
I found a book authored by him online,
and I must say,
editing sure as changed over time,
for the better!!!
I thought this scene was great,
and you can read a simple and lovely sentiment
written by George G. Foster.
Picture is anonymous...
In previous years,
I've written about memories of Xmas trees, music and dinners,
shopping and seeing Santa Claus.
The prompt this year shows people enjoying a Xmas dinner.
I'll just leave you with one short anecdote:
I am an only child
and I always found it rather vexing when my parents took me to visit people
for a celebration or another,
and that these people would sit me at the kids' table...
I was well-behaved and could sit at the grown-ups table;
and I certainly had better manners than some adults...
I always found it awkward to be with children
when my daily life revolved around adults.
I hope you won't find yourselves in any uncomfortable situations during these holidays,
but if you do,
please share the details!!!
Happy New Year!!
Don't forget to visit
for a bit of holiday cheers.
