there’s a kind of hush…

December 25, 2012

it’s christmas eve,

and it is snowing softly.

the horses and donkeys have taken shelter in their sheds

and watch as the ground turns white before them.

it’s quiet…

the deep quiet of christmas eve

with only the two of us at home.


we’re celebrating with a simple meal and new french wine,


raising our glasses to toast the holiday season


thankful to be warm, well-sheltered, and well-fed.

(the cats, although also well-fed,

wouldn’t mind if we offered to share our crab cakes…)


we’d like to take the opportunity to wish all of you,

family, friends, and loved ones,

a very merry christmas.

you make our lives complete.


love, peace, and joy to all of you.

      oliver has such pathetic, imploring eyes, doesn’t he?
      and truthfully, he’d be the last of the three to try to sneak one!
      thinking of you as the snow falls.
