Merry Christmas, Everyone!


I just wanted to say Thank you and I am so glad to have met you all. Merry Christmas and I know that 2011 will be such a very good year! I enjoy reading your blogs, they give me inspiration and ideas and intermingling your life with mine. I am honored and flattered that you read my blogs or even give a whit about me. The world becomes smaller with this sharing and it is comforting to know, although so far apart, we are on this road together.

I have learned so much this past year and in sharing my cancer story, my art story, my life story with you, I have been allowed into your stories. They have grown and we are getting better at telling them. In a way it is all the same story, yours and mine. Told at different times and different vantages, we are all seeking the same thing. We have become friends and I know if you find it you will tell me.

While we wait we hunt. Maybe that is the story. The journey itself and there is no end.

Each time we are so close the goalpost is moved. We anticipate its position only to be fooled.

Life becomes what to do with this trickery. We learn laughter and appreciation that they were only little wounds after all. We get up, dust ourselves off, and do it again. That is the Human Spirit and it is found all over the world. I know, you have told me so.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas to you Jerry. Life is always about the Journey never the destination, if it was what would we possible do when we got there! :D Looking forward to seeing what new pieces of inspiration you create in 2011.

It is I who is honored by you taking the time to look at my writings.
So wonderful to read your 'tales' and your successful fight against cancer ... your determination to ignore the negatives of the disease and to look forward to the beginning of each new day has been such an inspiration to me through difficult times.
I am so thankful and indeed blessed to have had the privilege to view and share the 'beauty' you post in words, art and photographs on your blog. Thanks for the opportunity to 'know' you a little and to share this space.

The best of Christmas to you and yours; and a prosperous and happy new year.

Isn't it amazing that you can find a closeness with others you've never met in person. I'm very glad I got the chance to know you a little through your writings, and touched that you have taken the time to comment on mine.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday.
