Christmas Day is drawing to a close here in Ireland and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kindness and support all year. Even though I have only ever met a few of my readers in person, I feel that I know many of you as ‘friends’ through our connection here in blogland.
You might wonder about the photograph I’ve chosen for today. It’s one of my anchors in my beloved Tramore and here’s a photograph that Dad took of me sitting on it when I was three or four:
I ended up pulling out these photographs as a result of reading these lines from Waterford-born poet, Sean Dunne:
Or will the key of Christmas flick
the lock free and let me sail
at last across the threshold?
The key of Christmas, as I see it, is a mingling of love, encouragement, empathy and belief. I feel that everyone needs these in their lives so that they can realise their potential and dreams.
My wish for everyone here in blogland is that the key of Christmas will flick for you and that together we can sail across thresholds that matter to us.
Sweet Dreams, dear Friends!
