Buon Natale





so, 
gentle readers...
it is time for my
annual
Buon Natale post...








there is a reason that this time of year
is called 
the "most wonderful time of the year..."

because so many religious traditions
celebrate
at midwinter...


"All this singing is just one song"
Rumi









For me, midwinter is about
reflection..
increasing my meditation process...
digging deeper

so I can see clearly
where I want to go..






both
spiritually 





and 
artistically...







and while I know
that 
Peace on Earth
is not the goal of every person...

one can dream....
and I can create peace..







in my own
tiny 
heart...



Happiest of Holidays 
to you all...
no matter what you celebrate...

I give thanks for each one of you,
faithful readers...
kind followers...
silent lurkers and collectors extraordinaire!

my heart goes out to you
at this time and always...

in love and gratitude...

P. S. See you after the new year...

I always love your Buon Natale posts and enjoy seeing your tree each year. I suspect this won't be the last year you put one in this home. It is certainly a gorgeous tree, and beautifully decorated, right down to each lovely ornament and package under the tree.

I'm sure I'll be by before then, but I wish you a very merry and safe Christmas.
