God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Annie Lennox

It's nice when some old favorites come out with some new music reviving some old holiday classics. I remember singing this when my sisters and I went carolling in our neighborhood on Christmas Eve. Yes, I'm that old ... happy weekend, everyone!

102310 Holiday Shoot

My friends in the Facebook 102310 Group are gearing up for another shoot, this time it will be the holidays in black & white. We're pretty excited to see what will come out of it, as we have people from all across the country, each with very different styles. I'll share what I get out of the day, but meanwhile perhaps you'll enjoy a few shots I took last year. Oh, and I really want this book. Can someone tell Santa I've been super- good this year?

Cognitive Dissonance

I was thinking today of a Rilke poem from his Sonnets to Orpheus;
Be ahead of all parting, as though it already were
behind you, like the winter that has just gone by.
For among these winters there is one so endlessly winter
that only by wintering through it all will your heart survive.

Winter has indeed come to Central Ohio with a rather fierce grip. We adjust our daily patterns to include layers, and moving the alarm clock up so we can chip away at our cars and allow for a longer drive time. And we try not to fantasize too much about those summer nights on the back patio ... they'll be back, and we'll welcome them with open arms.
