What You Are Saying
I should have been writing Christmas cards.
I should have been wrapping presents.
I should have been doing many things but I sat instead bemused before my monitor showing me beauty around the world.

A Christmas Alone by Pat Tyrer - What a really lovely and meaningful story! I remember the bridal dolls we all longed for and got for special presents so besides the personal setting, can guess a lot of how you must have felt about the present too. I guess it would be a similar desire for Barbie which I have seen where she can excite such imagination for playing dress-ups and dolls and families ´and all and all´ as they say here in many places. Etcetera is Latin but ´and all and all´ or ´what what´ goes better for Jozi-speak. Jozi-speak? Casual conversational turns of phrase used here by the people in Johannesburg aka Jozi (South Africa).

And all and all and what what I say for a really nice and tender read.

Thank you for writing it from your heart.

Wearing My Dead Mother´s Clothes
I have not yet given away her jewelry but I suppose that must happen some day.

Thank you.

Solstice Lament by Anne Dailey - brilliant! It spoke to me, waiting here in the dark, looking for the first glimmer of light. Sometimes we misplace the heart of ourselves in the hurry and blurry of life .... it is good to reflect and remember and hope for the return of the light. Thank you.
