Wishes for the Season...

by Kathleen


Last weekend as I sat on the sofa, blazing fire in the fireplace, two feet of soft fluffy snow outside, cats curled and purring on my husbands and my intertwined feet, good drink and food to hand, knitting and reading abounding... I felt the joy that comes with a day of love and warmth and peace. And I sent, and send, those same wishes to all and every one.
Whatever your celebrations may be, or if they even be not, Merry Christmas or Happy Hannukah, Good Ramadan or Solstice... may the wonder of these and a Happy New Year come to all and everyone. May this new year bring more and even better of the bliss of laughter and the luxury of pleasure, of the expanding of knowledge and deepening of hope, of the serenity of acceptance and the delight of generosity, but especially... of the love of family and the comfort of friends.

What a truly pleasant and cozy sight this photograph is.

I love the sort of day that you've described. That's my favorite sort of day.

I'm trying to learn to knit. Or rather, I was. I'm not doing too well, and so have switched over to trying to learn to crochet instead. I'm finding that a little easier. Hopefully, the next time my knitter friend Beth visits, she will be able to help me with the knitting.

Take care, Kathleen.
