“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.”
“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
I want to wish everyone a Happy Yule and Blessed Solstice–this wish goes to everyone regardless of religious beliefs or otherwise! This is a season of generosity, kindness, and forgiveness. Please try to spread kindness wherever you go.
Also, I am one of the unusual people who loves Winter–I always feel at my best physically and mentally at this time of year. I become more energetic, and I always feel like a child with delight when it snows.
Again–Have a Happy Yule and Blessed Solstice!

I have several Christmas movies that carry great meaning to me and that I have loved over many years. I have written about them before in this blog, and I will continue to do so. Now, however, I want to make a new entry into my list of favorite Christmas movies.
The Man Who Invented Christmas is an extraordinary film that was released last year. It is a wonderful movie that explores the creative process of Charles Dickens as he wrote the classic novel, A Christmas Carol. The director is Bharat Nalluri, and this work is marvelous! We get a direct entrance into Dickens’ mind as he struggles with his writing. His characters appear and talk to him, which is an excellent touch.
The film is based on the book by Les Standiford, and the stars are Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, and Jonathan Pryce. The entire cast, without exception, give extraordinary performances. Christopher Plummer as Scrooge is especially brilliant. Dan Stevens should be recognized as one of the finest actors today.
This film delivers the message of Dickens’ masterpiece, that humanity should be the business of everyone, that money should not be the focus of our lives, and that we should all try to help each other. It will capture your heart and soul, and it is a film I recommend completely! On a system of 5 stars, I give it five!
Please, do yourself a favor, and watch this movie!
November 13 is World Kindness Day, a time that is designated to try to help people in the world be kinder to each other. It may seem like a basic idea, but in the chaotic and, often vicious, world which we inhabit, it is a very good idea. Too often, people are absorbed into their own lives and do not realize that helping other people, simply for the sake of doing it, can make both the helper and the world a much better place. A simple action can extend far past its initial occurrence and spread, like a wave traveling through space, to impact many others.
Take the time today to do one kind thing for another person. It does not have to be a large action; a simple act of kindness has the same importance.
And here is another idea: extend being kind into every day. Try to make being kind a part of your life.

The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity. ~Ellen Parr
"Owning our story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky, but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light." ~ Brene Brown
