Every year I think I will get more painting done in December than I actually do and its all because of Christmas. At first I resent Christmas for disrupting my plans – but then the shopping has to be done, the planning, the cleaning and the cooking. I always feel better when I stop resisting and just flow with the season and remember what its all about. Its all about – for me – the joy of giving my best to the people I love – and whoever else gets in front of me, and relaxing into that makes it a huge pleasure. A gift.
So I wish all my readers the very best the season has to offer – may you all enjoy your family traditions – invent a couple of new ones and mostly – may you appreciate all the dear ones you’ll be seeing. Merry Christmas to you all.
This will be my last post of the year – but I will resume again on January 5, 2010. Happy New Year!
