You can write a slice for the Two Writing Teachers community today. Join us here at the end of 2015. It's always good to read what everyone shares. Thank you Stacey, Tara, Anna, Betsy, Dana, Kathleen, Beth, and Deb.
I hope everyone has had a nice holiday, whatever you celebrate, or are still celebrating, and that it hasn't been too upset by the weather. I had a wonderful Christmas, my son and family are still here, we'll continue to be with my daughter and family when we can, and they are enjoying spending time with good friends, and skiing too.
A huge part of my life is literature, both old and new, and another part is old stuff, little things, furniture, art, and vintage greetings. I have old Christmas cards and books, and greetings given a long time ago on Valentine's Day. I enjoy looking at the beautiful art and reading the more formal language. Here is the cover and one page of a little book I found last summer at a used bookstore (not where I'm volunteering) in Denver. And the front and the back of an old postcard.
This "after Christmas" week is the time I begin preparing to welcome the new year, as Rainer Maria Rilke says so beautifully, "full of things that have never been."
Wishing you all a slice of wisdom coupled with kindness in this new year to be.
