the first tree of the season...

...our "bit of earth" came with six acres of balsams.
old friends came over yesterday to cut theirs.

their daughter, anne, a best friend of our lindsey's
is in kabul, building peace.
(please keep her in your thoughts.)

this is a good time of year to remember that
 the important things in life are not things....

and that there are many wonderful and different ways
 to celebrate the season of light...

explore them!
