Yule Blessings, Season’s Greetings & Hope for 2017

Happy Holidays! Blessed Yule! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Joyful Kwanzaa! Happy New Year!  I think that covers it but if I missed anything, then happy merry for that too!  Now more than ever we need to be accepting and appreciative of our own cultures as well as the cultures & traditions of others!  There is beauty in diversity…it would be so dull if we were all the same, wouldn’t it?  (If you don’t think so then that’s your call but really think about it….what foods do you like?  Bet at least some come from other countries….  What movies, books, art, etc. are you interested in?  Doubt they all come from a homogeneous source!)

Sure, times are scary, the unknown can be scary, but what’s the most frightening is hatred for what we don’t understand and what that can lead to!  As an artist I’ve gained so much by studying art & mythology from across the globe…it’s lead me to travel, meeting great, new people, trying delicious foods and to creating unique art.

So I wish for all of you to have a Happy Healthy Holiday, whatever you celebrate or don’t celebrate…and a diverse, fun, peaceful New Year!  And now I’d like to share some holiday/winter themed photographs I’ve taken recently as well as through the last several years.  Enjoy the slide show!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Blogland!

Hi All!  I’ll make this short and sweet being it’s New Year’s Day and you’re all either exhausted, hung-over or both after last night’s festivities…and if not, then I hope you still had fun whatever you did!  I just want to wish you all a HAPPY, HEALTHY, CREATIVE, PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!  Thanks for reading my blog and I’m planning on posting even more interesting, artistic blogs in 2013, not only from myself but some exciting guest bloggers as well….stay tuned….
