What a year!

What a year …
Like so many
Wrought with drama and celebration
Death and near misses
New and rekindled love
Challenges and achievements
births and new beginnings
Strife and joy
Change, growth, and transition
What a year!
In the end … the good outweighs the bad
In the end … I’m happy not sad.
Happy New Year!

Colors of Christmas

Colors of Christmas
What color is your Christmas?
Bing sings about white Christmas
Elvis about blue, Burl Ives, Silver and Gold
Santa has rosy cheeks and a scarlet coat
holly and Christmas trees - green
Bluebird has gone away
Brown paper packages tied up with strings

A color extravaganza
Not just red and green
Colors significant in all that they mean
My tree is bedecked in traditional colors
But this year I added a few:
Purple for Tri Sigma,
Pink in memory, and
Blue for M go blue
Celebrate and surround yourself with your colors
This day and throughout the year
