Christmas Greetings


Kent's feathered tree

Kent’s feathered tree

The day of the winter solstice—and first day of Christmas week—should be a time of peace, comfort, blessings and hope for the future.  So I shall pass on this week’s commentary on our less-than-comforting health care system.  Instead, I want to wish you the best of the holiday season—in whatever tradition you choose to celebrate.



For us, we still celebrate with services on Christmas Eve. But we have replaced our “for real” tree with a series of red ones. Our first—an elegant affair made from feathers—was contributed by Kent the year we met; each year, we honor our good luck with another unique addition.


Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year.                                          




  1. Merry Christmas and a joyous holiday season to you and yours!

  2. Season’s Greetings to you and Kent. It is obvious he adores you. Red is my favorite color and I’ve enjoyed these four fiery displays here on your website. I’ll also say “Welcome back” even though I know you’ve re-entered the blogosphere a few weeks ago.

    Happy Noooo Year too!
