Ringing in the Season

Greetings fine and Christmasy folk! The view is great today – lots of blue sky and puffy clouds over Cypress and incoming hummingbird clouds leading us to our main topic today which is “humming“!

It’s nice to hear the care aids at Ma’s new care home in Lynn Valley humming and singing as you go down the hall. Ma is adjusting well and it has only been a couple of days.

Now a poem:

humming georgia

driving home from the church gig
i come upon the melting moon…
crème brulée – with a spoonful
already eaten…
just for a moment – a pine tree silhouette carves
the moon’s surface and i realize
i’ve never actually seen this sight before,
though i’ve heard the lyric and sung it many times.

but tonight, our love comes home to me, “sweet and clear like moonlight through the pines”

home yes, almost home.

from Looking for Hymn collection by Holly Burke

And lastly, I have a little gift for those of you dear readers with a smart phone: a ringtone of Serengeti

So I am sending out warm Christmas wishes to all of you and hoping that you have a good one and looking forward to new adventures in 2017!
