The nature pictures are from stock.xchng and the vintage light reflector picture is my photo of my mother in law's tree this year. I fought Ebay wars to bring my husband's childhood tree to life in our new home for next Christmas ;)

The sentimental favorite is the second (of course!), but overall I like the third the best. Really beautiful.

You're so good to seek out those special reminders of Christmas for Dave! And your haiku - and the accompanying photos - are just beautiful.

Hi Tammy,

Is it my imagination, or have you been writing a lot more these days? I went off of blogging for just a week, and it seems that I've missed numerous entries.

The haiku is really lovely. I like the first one the best.

re: sense of humor and illness. I'm not sure how you do it. I can keep a sense of humor about a lot of things, but physical pain is really hard for me. I also would never inject humor into another person's pain.

I thought about you this week with my throbbing and sometimes searing pain in my leg. I actually went out and got a cane today. Your upbeat attitude toward life speaks so much of your boundless spirit. I'm afraid I'm a bit of a grouch this week, especially if I have to walk at all. Hats off to you, Tammy.

Lovely series of reflections in words and photos.

Even if they are not all your photos, you have matched them up with the wrds beautifully. What a lovely tree.

"Still water canvas" what a great line of words! I've lived near water all my life and never thought of it that way! Hooray for winning the ebay war! I once fought the good fight for Fisher Price toys to recreate the 70s for my kids!

What lovely Haiku and pictures. I like the line "childhood restored." It reflects your generosity in restoring happy memories and making them for the future, as well. Very nice!

Tammy,
I'm running out of superlatives to give you. I hope you know how I feel....

Love,
Nancy

Fine stuff here! I've been thinking about you hanging around in your velcro suit, and I've come to the conclusion that it's a much better idea than that magnet suit, even tho it might be shiney and make lovely tinkling sounds. It would probably attract lots of little messy iron filings, too. The velcro is by far the best idea. :)

A beautiful presentation. My favorite is the first.

Beautiful, Tammy! I loved every picture, every word.

Lovely, all, Tammy. The Christmas haiku made me feel wistful and nostalgic.

So typical to read of your thoughtfulness in an entry. I'll bet Dave will cherish that always.

Lovely work and choice of imagery!
