We must take care of one another this year...

We must take care of one another this year: “One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea-town corner now and out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep, that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six.” And so starts my favorite Christmas book, A Child’s Christmas in Wales, by Dylan Thomas.

These are the very ice skates I got when I was ten!

As I finally get around to posting my New Year's column, I sit in my lovely studio listening to Pachelbel's Canon in D. It seems to be the perfect music to listen to as I recall with such fondness the skates in the picture. Yes, those skates were my Christmas gift when I was ten. I have loved them all my life although I have not been skating in a few years. So, I say, why not? Perhaps this winter I will try again.

I want to wish you the happiest of New Year's events and thoughts and please, take good care of each other, won't you?

As always, thank you for reading. Just click on the above link and there it is!

It's so good Lou Ann, I loved it ... First I love you as an old fashion woman who makes me laugh just the way she uses words and humor... You really touch my heart !! it's so good to hear you affirm about being good to one another no matter what our superficial differences !

I love your attitude on life, Lou Ann
And isn't that the reason we are all here ...
To help one another?
Forget the resolutions
Just keep doing what you're doing.
A very happy new year to you!

Thank you for such a nice note. I have a lovely piece of art in my living room by Brian Andreas. It is colorful and the caption says, "Isn't the reason we are here is to eat each other's cooking and say it is good." (Or something like that!)
Happy New Year to you as well!!

Happy Valentine's Day

  It is Valentine’s week which is always a wonderful day to reflect or just a day to stay in bed and wait for next year. (Kind of like Groun...
