Wasn't it just summer?
And then I was in California and it never stopped being summer. It was hot all the way through September. October even, I think.
I missed autumn, in time and in my heart.
Some of my family is faraway.
Some here. Some gone.
I wish for the season to come upon me, anxiety creeping as I have always been the prime participant in the creation of the season and I forgot a little this year.
Is that the symptom of some current (media popular) disease?
"She forgot Christmas was coming. She forgot to go home."
The ritual trimmings and trappings, Christmas crackers?
This year music will have to carry me through, it must!
I demand it! Yes, some people call me demanding.
I know my dear ones; it's out of character, isn't it? (She says to herself).
Upbeat upbeat, stay upbeat ~ It's not just you, you know. Yes I know. I will be in Arizona for Christmas, I think! We are going back to Jodi Floyd's where I spent that first Christmas when Peter left us, and I stayed.
I stayed to trim trees make merry, write.
And sing. Fa Lalalala La La La Laaaaaa!!!!
And I'll look for Santa in a Christmas Eve sky… and for the angel, do I see her?
With the king of kings and the ghost of Christmas past, a true believer.
Merry Christmas ~ and may you prosper and flourish in the New Year. I demand it :)
My Christmas tree theme this year is Reynolds Wrap. Aluminum foil.
Jeordie brought me a set of lights and a pack of candy canes.
I realized that Reynolds Wrap was born in 1947, it said so on the box.
"Trusted since 1947", so I decided we would have an aluminum foil tree.
Look what I've done with your aluminum foil!
Because after all is said and done and the mantle on the fireplace looks perfect and the stockings are hung and the table is set and I pull a pie out of the oven , then it hits me ....who's coming
Who'll be here? Who will sit around the table, who will be missing?
The big question ...will peace come in time for Christmas?
Will peace come in time for Christmas.
