Imaginary Exhibits: Happy Holidays

No matter what your beliefs, winter is a time of cold and darkness*. Festivals of light in times of dark are good for the soul. So too is coming together, celebrating, saying prayers and thanks, thinking of renewal and new things sprouting up from the old, and making excuses to be generous, kind, and open-hearted...

May merriment pervade your darkest days and keep you warm through the cold, friends, the days of black branches and the nights of bitter ice (spiritual or physical, and quite often both).

May the universe heap blessings on your heads and fill your nights with lamp-like stars and starry lamps.

And yes, one day I will dedicate an exhibition to festivals of lights. I just need to finish this eggnog first...

*Unless you live in Australia, like a large percentage of my family. But the metaphor holds. Or at least we can pretend it holds, because it's the f!@&ing holidays and you should be nice to me.

  2. If it weren't for the celebrations we have in the dead of winter I think we would all go mad! Just look at the one says 'the dead of summer' your blog!

  3. True enough. I think cycles of living and dying are extremely important, but bearing life in mind where we're in the season of dying things is sometimes all that gets us through.


Please do try to be thoughtful and considerate when posting comments, but we do love hearing what you think!
