(until Christmas I post a Williamsburg wreath everyday to mark the season of Advent)
1. Enjoying being home and marking a few things off my list.
2. Love the Harry Potter films this week-end. Never tire of them. Discover something new everytime I see them.
3. Jim put up the Christmas tree and voila - it has lights installed on it. The glowing plain tree looks quite nice - - - ah - choices
Musing on choices -
for years I just went on to automatic pilot for holidays - shopping, cooking, mailing cards, etc etc . You know the drill. Without thinking I went full steam ahead.
For about ten years I have been questioning the wisdom of that
What is it all for and at what cost.
These days I think everyone should re-examine the cost of those usual things we do,
Habits can be costly.
and just well being.
I am not a philosopher or intellectual
and I come to ephiphanies
but I have lately recognized
that I often squander
my most precious commodity - - -
like something that can be restored.
the truth is
when its gone
it is gone.
