The Wonder Week


From wonder into wonder existence opens. (La0 Tzu)

My intention today was to post about the Christmas market in Düsseldorf, Germany (where we saw this little boy), but I've decided to leave that for our "2nd Christmas Day" a week from now.

Today needs simplicity. It needs wonder. May you have it in abundance all week long. And for those of you who celebrate it....

  11. A very happy and cozy Christmas to you and Astrid, Ginnie. Are you going to be staying close to home for the holidays? I have an ulterior motive for asking...

  12. Simplicity and wonder - true gifts of the season.

    I saw your comments at shutterchance about enjoying angels. Here's one of the loveliest Christmas songs I know - a Serbian carol called "Angels Sing".

    Merry Christmas to you and Astrid!

  13. Deborah: Thank you, dear Lady, and YES, we'll be close to home all weekend. Pray tell!

    SA: Simplicity and wonder. Yes. Maybe we never lose either!

    The Serbian song has totally filled me up this morning. THANK YOU for it. Even without knowing most of the words, you know what it's about!
