2013 Insights:Happy Holidays
It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake,
the fire of the frost, the soul
of the sunbeam.
This crisp winter air is full of it. ~John Burroughs, "Winter Sunshine"
"Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall,
the genial flame of charity in the
heart." ~Washington Irving
"Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed
slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again."
~Bill Morgan, Jr.
"Christmas is forever, not
for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box
upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself..."
~Norman Wesley Brooks "Let Every
Day Be Christmas" 1976
