If you would be so kind, I'd like to share with you my Christmas list and wishes. But first off, let me start by sharing with you that with the exception of the one too many glasses of Stag's Leap, I have been a remarkably good girl this year, quite angelic (as you know)... Santa before I share with you my Christmas list I'd like to express that though my fiance has not acted in the same adorable, admirable, angelic manner as I have, could you please find it in your heart to grant him at least one of his Christmas wishes? Please take note Santa that this is by no means part of my list but I just thought I'd throw it out there. :o)
Okay jolly one here goes...
I would like two front row/center VIP concert tickets with back stage passes to each of the following concerts... The Civil Wars, Mumford and Sons, and Justin Nozuka
And though I have seen DMB four times already I have yet to experience the intimacy of Dave and Tim in concert, so add that to the list as well... Oh and can you throw in a trip to Virginia so I can tour Blenheim Vineyards? I"d like tickets to a Paris fashion show, as I have never been to one, of course you would need to provide me with a round trip 1st class plane ticket and accommodations at the impeccably designed Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris... but what am I saying I know you can make it happen, you are Santa after all. I would also like an original Jeff White painting to hang on my wall so that when I pass it daily I can be inspired by the creativity and inspiration his work brings to the world. Additionally I would really enjoy having a set of Libbey Art Deco martini glasses (enough to serve at least 24) as I will be entertaining a lot in my new Craftsmen home that you will provide for me... you know the one with the Audi Q5 parked in the driveway... over looking the ocean (or lake) in Northern California or perhaps Seattle.
And finally, my last wish Santa and this is probably the most important one, I would like every human being, creature, critter, bug, and thing to experience love, joy, happiness, and peace everyday that they exist on this planet.
Well Santa, I'm confident that you can fulfill all of the wishes on my elf-like Christmas list. And in good faith Santa I vow to focus on how I can help RJ stay off the naughty list next year. Thanks Santa and Happy Christmas!_
Walking through the crisp winter cold down the hard grey sidewalk, my right foot succeeding the left… I stare fixed and in contemplation at the path before me; my coffee tinted eyes notice something shiny, a small round coin, ten cent. I bend down to pick it up. I stand and continue, three more steps, another luminous dime staring up at me. “Wow” I thought, my day is turning around the universe was sending me a sign saying “Cheer up Dionne; it’s not all bad…” It wasn’t until a few moments later as I waited for my greasy lunch order that I realized, the 20 cents was not a message for optimism, but rather an ominous sign from above. 20 Kindergarten Children and 6 Adults died today. 20 children who will not see Christmas, 2013, or life; 20 parents who have to stare at the colorful unwrapped gifts under their pine smelling trees… , 6 adults who tried to protect those kids, 6 adults with unique families and friends of their own, 6 adults who will never enjoy another radiant sunset, brilliant blue sky, or cozy summer day.
Why are we at war with each other? Why does this continue to happen? Who is responsible? So many unanswered questions…
What I can say is this Christmas hug your family, show them love, and focus on the joy your friends and family bring into this world. None of us will live forever but we all deserve the chance to LIVE.
