Thank you Jarkko and Eija, for that most welcome and cooling of images!
Oh, what I would give for that to B4real and have it travel to my different side of the world at this the hottest of times! But never mind the weather, I am reminded how fortunate I am to still be living in this world. So no matter what the situation or season, make the most of each day as it comes, look after yourself and each other and the world will always be a better place!

Happy Holidays to everyone across the miles!

And thus the ocean is crossed
The waters are blessed while a shadowy guest
Kindles a light for the lost

The Future ~
Ring the bells that still can ring .....
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!

The white snow against the brightness of the blue sky is capturing, Eija. A beautiful image.
Last night and tonight, I've been reading through various threads related to The Flame. And now in this section, too, and to the work still to come, facilitated by Adam. My heart is heavy and my stomach aching, as I read. It's just hard, and it brings back the reality full force that Leonard is gone. There's nothing to distract from that fact because every word relates to Leonard. With time, I'll be able to comment more, but right now, I mostly feel like I'm walking through a graveyard on a winter day. It'll take some time.
Meanwhile, such a beautiful greeting you two have sent all of us, maintaining your beautiful tradition of photographed love.
I sincerely hope everyone's holidays are happy and filled with love.
May you two have warm family times with children!

Much love,
Lizzie

Hi,
Thanks to Jarkko and all who created the Forum and to all who find temporary residence here. May we all find what we need and long for over this Christmas period and may we be good to the year ahead and may it be good to us.

All the best,
merton

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a fabulous New Year. Hopefully we will have a chance to meet and lose ourselves in Leonard Cohen’s music & poetry.
