Barbara Muir © 2019There's something about the holiday season that strikes
me as brilliant -- I don't mean the presents, which are
lovely, but also make you worried about the planet, and
excess and should we be buying anything, and why don't
we make everything? No. I mean the timing. Especially
here in Canada where snow is part of December and the
end of the year.
A rash of parties, the need for family arrangements, dashing
here and there to buy the odd gift, keeping in touch with
everyone and wishing them love, and joy, and a great New
Year, and Happy Holidays. All of this makes the month
of December speed by in a whirlwind of mostly happy
if rushed days, filled with music and laughter. And then --
whammo you're in a new year. And the light is returning!
One of the things I love about the season is the fruit.
Maybe because fruit also carries with it the promise
of spring, and flowers and warmth. So tonight settling
down for a minute to talk to you, I chose this painting as
a joyous one for the occasion.
Have a lovely day.
