This chunky spider was once upon a time dangling right above my front door…I brought it in and placed in on a paper towel and snapped away. I released it into/onto a safe environ.

aftermath….

It was a blessed Christmas, quite Merry and in perfect balance this year. In years past, there was a harried sense, a regret over priorities askew, too much focus and finding/buying and less on the spiritual, familial and giving thanks. This year the pace was busy, there was my usual pre-holiday cold, the last minute this and that…but, this year everyone (12 of us) was in a good place. There was the right balance of presents, visiting, great foods and lots of hugs and ‘I love you’s. We all paid silent homage to those that have passed and were instrumental in establishing this celebration in our young minds.

Of course, this morning everyone is zonked out and there are many dishes, glasses, cups to clean up. But, the warm glow of thankfulness rules. Right now, I have a five year old grandson, who spent the night next to me, itching to go kick a new soccer ball somewhere and not hear ‘hey, not in the house!!’

Saint (Santa) Nicholas (Claus) Merry Christmas!

WHO IS 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;  The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;….’   Clement Moore


The Christmas season, for me, has always been a joyous season. Fanciful, blessed with  the underpinnings of  religion. Some years surrounded by family. Some seasons working nights and away. Some seasons alone, cut off and remembering. Through it all, the underlying pleasure has never, for me, succumbed to commercialism burn out, negativity over family strife or a bah! humbug! moment. A balance is maintained over realities, fantasies and faith.

For all the trappings, the build up, the season and the aftermath (a bit of a let down) no cynicism will take away the wonderful feelings I derive and share. Keep the faith as it suits you. Share the love. To all Merry Christmas.   Digital story of nativity…..
