Why just this past week we've begun to receive Christmas cards in the mail, though not as many as in recent years. We've received a bunch of packages, some from family and friends, some from Amazon and other suppliers. We check our lists, coordinate what has to go out with what remains to be packed up and wrapped. I'm sending out a few of my shingle paintings to friends and family, and ordering a few tiles with select drawings from my website applied to the surface. These make nice gifts. Here is hoping your planning and execution are all under control and that you get a slice of time at the end of each Advent Day to simply rest!
In the midst of this Christmas season, even given our national challenges and international frictions, I wish you all a safe, healthy, joyful and not too crazed shopping experience...along with your Advent preparation.
