    Default Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All!

    On this Christmas Eve, Iím filled with sadness for the loved ones that Iíve lost..
    My mother a little over a year ago.. Honey, my beloved furry companion for 14 wonderful years..

    Uncles and Aunts, friends who left this mortal coil far too soon..

    But I know they live on, unencumbered by the physical..

    And, I am filled with gratitude for having been gifted with their presence in my life.. so lucky Iíve been!!

    And, despite these troubled times.. I am filled with hope for the future.

    To all who may read this, know that you matter. The fact that you are here is not random. You are a shining, divine being, wearing a body constructed of dust from the stars

    Here is something I used to listen to every Christmas Eve. A tradition in my family. I still do sometimes.

    I hope you enjoy..

    With Love

    Ken

    Special shout out to Hervť.

    Ken, sorry for the loss of your love ones. Odd how it seems like it was just a bit ago you were together and in other ways itís life times ago.

    My sonís anniversary was a little more than a week ago. This one was the easiest because experiential happenings are on the rise. (i.e. easier contact - ET phone home ) To my way of thinking this dysfunctional 3D game is closer to itís sell by date. Weíll celebrate with our love ones over Coney Island hot dogs, pizza and brewskis.



    Some even say itís done. All we need to do is wake up. If that is true, itíd explain why people seem to be in a fog, or their bodies are winding down, or unfocused, or needing extra sleep or power naps. Speculation?

    Very many thanks, Ken, and Hello Everyone:

    As I posted here, anyone who might happen to be on their own today (or with some attention to spare!) is MOST MOST welcome to join me vicariously to enjoy a small handful of Christmas treats at 12 noon US eastern time. Exactly where I might be right then, I promise to post a photo later.

    Happy holidays everyone!

    Each year I try to keep the holiday spirit/energy going so that everyday is special. It is just part of a way of thinking and celebrating life.

    It is great to have this time of year but I encourage people to try to feel this way everyday, even just a little bit. And if you do this, imagine how great next year will be!
