‘Tis the Season

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The holiday season. You could smell it in the air. The spices, the cakes, and the candy. Wrapping paper crackled and tinsel sparkled. There was a general air of anticipation and fun mixed in with frantic holiday shopping. Everyone was awash with mulled wine, goodwill, and charity.

Not everyone was happy, to be sure. Jody and Fred spent the days huddled together in wordless misery. Nobody had told them, but they knew.

One of them would be for the pot.

A bit of a downer for a holiday? So how do I turn that round? Well, maybe Jody and Fred will follow this example.

Circle

Until he extends his circle of compassion

to include all living things,

man will not himself

find peace.

Albert Schweitzer

The paper wreath is inspired by Clouds of Color, a creative blogger. It’s very easy to make, and can be adapted to any taste – instructions here: I’m amazed at how different it looks. Yesterday’s window decoration was made the same way, just on a straight strip of cardboard.

The Travel Theme: Circles.
