"It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas..."

Sorry it took me so long (it has been a busy few weeks), but here, finally, are the pictures of my Christmas decorating efforts. Yessir, from my "Christmas plant" to the freehand bird I drew for the microwave, to the decorations I made for my windows, to the paper wreath on my door - all are displayed at last! I may not be very artistic, but I certainly am enthusiastic!

No comments:

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
