I went for a short walk yesterday.
On a path along the Mill River I spotted a new tree for dummies.
I have seen more beautiful dummy trees than this one, but the intention is not to be mistaken.
To get rid of a dummy is a huge step for at little child.
They start early, the little people with New Year’s resolutions.
2019 is the end of dummies 🙂
The good life is a process, not a state. It’s a direction, not a goal. Carl Rogers.
Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true…
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
One shade of blue for water, one for ice,
Another blue for shadows over snow.
The clear or cloudy sky uses blue twice-
Both different blues. And hills row after row
Are colored blue according to how far.
You know the bluejay’s double-blur device
Shows best when there are no green leaves to show.
And Sirius is a winterbluegreen star.
Blue Winter by Robert Francis
The place was empty! Santa Claus was not in his office, and all the elves were gone.

It takes a Santa to know ‘white’ from wrong!
The staff should know.
Then I discovered that Santa’s reindeer had run away –
… and Santa and his elves were out looking for Rudolph
