1. This morning we're getting what appears to be our first serious snow of the coming winter season.
For over a year now, I've been taking a few snapshots, each month, of Woodbury's Heritage House at the corner of Radio Drive and Lake Avenue. Today seemed to be a good day to take the final in a series of photos which essentially begin on the Winter Solstice in 2011. You can view the entire 'gallery' of about 47 photos here.
It's been fun watching the reenactment of a year in the life of that 1870 structure. And it's been an eventful year indeed.
2. Back in November I filed a post about my kid sister Mary Ann taking a Peace Corps assignment in Vanuatu in the South Seas of the Pacific Ocean. Subsequent I've received three pieces of correspondence from her, and a photograph, and I've added these additions and a map of this tiny island country here.
Our Dad used to say that he liked to travel through the pages of the National Geographic. This is a similar opportunity to travel vicariously through anothers journey.
3. Finally, each year for the last 35 I've done my own "Christmas card". Recently a Caribou Coffee friend sent a 1973 photograph, which brought forth my 2012 "card", here.
Especially note the Louie Schwartzberg video on Gratitude, which is linked at the end of the post.
All best wishes in this hectic Christmas season.
