This is one of Eija's experimental flower & ice photos.
We had chosen it for this year's greeting before she suddenly became seriously ill six weeks ago.

Hauskaa joulua, Jarkko and Eija!

It was so nice to finally get to meet you on Hydra in June.

Thank you for all your efforts over the years to help keep Leonard's work alive.

Thank you, Jarkko and Eija, for the beautiful artwork and warm wishes.

However, I'm terribly sorry to hear that Eija has been unwell -- my thoughts are with you both. Please take the best of care.

Happy Holidays to everyone here on the Forum and particularly to Jarkko and Eija. Thinking of the both of you a lot lately, let's hope the Holidays will bring good news and Eija will recover soon.

All good things

I wholeheartedly reciprocate, but particularly wish Eija a speedy recovery of her full health :!:

Cheers,
Andrew :)

Thanks, Jarkko and Eija for all your seasonal greetings! I’m directing healing thoughts to Eija and as always, her ice creations have a most welcomed cooling effect where I am. Hopefully, I will make it reciprocal with this image and send everyone in the grip of a Northern Hemisphere winter, some warmth from a Southern Hemisphere summer. I’m fortunate to live by the ocean and on a hot, steamy day it’s so cooling to go down to the beach and just chill out 8)

All the best to one and all, live in the moment and relish it.
