Now that I have your attention, I’ve decided not to put away my tree until after the inauguration.

Here’s my reasoning! Have you noticed that many religions/traditions have lights added in some way? December ushers in the darkest season, with the hope of light coming.

I will keep the lights on my Christmas tree on, reminding me light is entering our world here in the USA.

(Notice, I did not say perfection or flawless-ness is coming. But I have hope that government may be a helper to unite us and straighten out the mishandling of our pandemic.)

Have a safe and peaceful new year! May 2021 bring you much cheer!


Bye Bye 2020

2020, what have you done?
-Infected the world with Covid
-Showed the world the good side of social media
-Lots of fake news
-Lots of scientific news
-Showed us vulnerabilities in our government/constitution
-Showed us our less than good healthcare system

This year, 2020

Brought tears
Tears of anguish
Anguish and sorrow
Sorrow and grief
Grief and pain
Pain and separation
Separation of families
Families are hungry
Hungry for food and socialization
Socialization is different
Different and untouchable
Untouchable to keep us well
Well, this year wants to be forgotten
Forgotten, yet lessons learned
Learned to wear masks
Masks can save lives
Live with hands washed
Wash your hands
Hands for hugging

Next year?


Week 52, 2020 #52Frames 2020 in a Photo

This is the last photo challenge for this year. I have not yet missed a week since week 8 of 2015. Here is a link to my album. This weeks photo won’t be live until Tuesday.

Title: Pandemic Driveway Christmas

Description: I got mixed up about the challenge. I thought it was a new technique, but that was just the extra credit. I worked long and hard on using my Gosky with the iPhone attachment. The birds did not cooperate. The wind was blowing. I gave up and took photos of a squirrel.

HOWEVER, I had taken this panoramic photo on Christmas Eve and it definitely fits with the theme of 2020 in a photo. (I’ll post the photo taken with Gosky in comments.)


Here’s the Gosky photo.
