It’s December and we dream of a white Christmas! My favourite memories of the holidays are of falling snow covering the world with a white soft carpet—as I thought. As you grow older, you realize that while snow creates the most stunning scenery, but it's difficult to live and drive in it. And it's bone-chilling! So this year, for the holidays, I brought my studio to the desert for warm weather.
Even though it doesn't look like Christmas, I still enjoy listening to Christmas songs, yes, Christmas music. This one by Josh Groban is special, it’s filled with good recollections.
If you prefer a more contemporary version of “The Little Drummer Boy” here's one from Pentatonix.
I wrote my first blog post during the holidays of 2015. It has been my tradition to view a YouTube video of the Christmas Sound and Light show on Parliament Hill, to remind me of my home in Ottawa, Ontario.
Thank you for your support. Please accept this holiday greeting as a symbol of my appreciation for your continued reading.
Taking pleasure in a stupendous sunset from our putt-putt (as we call our little trailer); I took a deep breath and reflected on the last year. 2017 was a rollercoaster ride filled with life-altering decisions which brought sorrow, changes, travel, fun, and smiles. May the next year be a period of beautiful transformation; may you find balance and glee in life!
I wish you the Hope, Wonder, and Joy that the Season can bring!
