Giving Christmas away

Margret Hofheinz-Döring/ Galerie Brigitte Mauch Göppingen

I'm offering the following largely because of the words, "exuberant armfuls". That strikes me as very wonderful image:
Let me not wrap, stack, box, bag, tie, tag, bundle, seal, keep Christmas.
Christmas kept is liable to mold.
Let me give Christmas away, unwrapped, by exuberant armfuls.
Let me share, dance, live Christmas unpretentiously, merrily,
responsibly with overflowing hands, tireless steps and sparkling eyes.
Christmas given away will stay fresh—even until it comes again.

-- Linda Felver


  1. Interesting perspective. Is it easy to do? I'm not sure it is.

  2. I know what you mean, Tom. I'm sure it's not easy. And, yet, your profile picture here is evidence that this is indeed what you are doing!
