Discussing Christmas cards, a friend noted that they are beautiful but asked 'what do you do with them?"
I think the answer is that they are like fine dinners. You savor them.
Shortly before Christmas I confessed that I wanted to somehow connect with my entire circle of special acquaintances... whether by snail mail or email or telephone or hugs.
I did pretty well. I didn't reach everyone but most. And I was rewarded with personal and paper and electronic greetings that brightened my days. I propped the tangible ones in a rather haphazard display on a living room shelf.
They made me smile.
Then I almost recycled them. All except those with family pictures or handmade creations or other qualities that made them keepsakes.
So much for savoring.
Remembering my vow, I rescued some of them from their ecological destination and took a couple pictures.
a celebration of connections.
