Eve of Christmas Eve!!

For the sake of it being the eve of Christmas Eve..the 23rd.. here is one sample/preview of my homemade Christmas card collection! So far I have made 12.

I used to make Christmas cards with watercolor every year when I was kid because I took art lessons and that's what we did when the Holidays rolled around. I should go find one of my old ones and compare ... it's almost 10 years later..heehee.

Today~ My friend Jane comes back home from Korea!! wEEEee I have to wake up in 5 hours lol~~~then I must get ready because I'm going to dinner @ Joey's...FINALLY! Never beeeen there!!

Anyhoo, goodnight and I will post the rest of my cards next time. ta-ta!

Love After Love

Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

-Derek Walcott
