Arizona is beautiful in winter. Snow dusts the Catalina Mountains near Tucson, while below, saguaro nod in approval. The desert humbles us once more.
Happy holidays to all my friends here at the Bloggybirdery. May we each discover during this coming year that our writing has turned wild with adventure, is touched with the brilliance of angels, and serves, in even a small part, as a deft gift to mankind.
Here are words from four past writers to remind us that our words shall forever grace those kind enough to read them.
Good news from heaven the angels bring,
Glad tidings to the earth they sing:
To us this day a child is given,
To crown us with the joy of heaven.
From home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another
The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other.
Clement C Moore, A Visit from St Nicholas
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there
At Christmas I no more desire a rose,
Than wish a snow in May’s new-fangled shows;
But like of each thing that in season grows.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANUKKAH, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, AND BRILLIANT WRITING DAYS, EVERYONE!
P.S. For those following the escapades of Wilson the Labradoodle, I’ll post graduation pictures soon. He’s still trying to recover from an unfortunate Santa encounter and has asked everyone to respect his privacy during these most trying and sensitive days.
