The moon, the stars, the glistening snow
wishing you a Christmas thats bright and beautiful
and a sparkling New Year
There is a quality of stillness so rare that the air shimmers in its presence, like right after a new snowfall
Needless to say,, this phot0 was taken last year, no snow for us this year - but we can dream, so let's just remember . . . .
Skating on the Pond at Glen Oak Lagoon, this is from a painting by Elmer King - a much-loved Peoria area artist.
Skating with friends and family on these park ponds was a
wonderful part of our winters for many years.
Mt. Pilatus in Lucerne Switzerland, 1967, the only year we spent Christmas away from home, far away from home!
A favorite miniature painting by my Aunt Betty - 1975
with Katherine Hepburn? That is one big snowman.
It wouldnt be Christmas without the art of Tasha Tudor and her wonderful books.
