First day of Christmas

Hello Readers, and here's hoping that the First Day of Christmas finds you well.

That's not at all to discount anyone who doesn't celebrate Christmas; Happy Chanukah, Merry Kwanzaa, Wonderful Winter Solstice, Awesome Atheist Day, Festive Fill-in-the-Blank Day!

I'll be using the Twelve days of Christmas for some semblance of structure for the remainder of the month; each will have a humorous gift-giving idea, suggestion for Santa, and/or outright gift for anyone with a crush on the city of Colorado Springs.

Interspersed throughout will be a series of intensely personal discourses that I feel moved to write for this winter season - for you, for me, and for God.

Today's offering comes under the "I LOVE COLORADO SPRINGS" category. It's a photograph of Monument Valley Park in taken in 1898. When my husband and I met at Palmer High School 26 years ago, we would steal away for quiet walks together at the same place depicted in the photograph; its beauty has moved me to tears.
