Merry Wishes & Happy Christmas.

December 20, 2009

"Again Christmas, abiding point of return. Set apart by its mystery, mood and magic, the season seems, in a way to stand outside of time. All that is dear, that is lasting, renews its hold on us: we are home again."
-Elizabeth Bowen

And as I type this I am sitting in my second home, far away, in New Zealand.

Can't wait for my very first Christmas on the beach!

(And if I'm not here in the meantime...)
I want to wish you all a very merry and magical Christmas,
and a warm and bright new year!

If you haven't been able to tell,
Christmas really is my favorite time of year;
I've always wondered why there is something so special in the air,
and why there is something inside of me that seems to just start glowing -
but I think Elizabeth Bowen illustrated my feelings beautifully when she says,
we are home again.

No matter where that may be.
