*SOUL STAR* ~ My 'Happy Christmas' to You

"If, as Herod we fill our lives with things, if we consider ourselves so important that we must fill every moment of our lives with action, when will we have the time to make the long, slow journey across the desert as did the Magi? Or sit and watch the stars as did the shepherds? Or brood over the coming of the child as did Mary?

For each one of us . . . There is a desert to travel.
A Star to Discover.
And a being within ourselves, to bring to Life."

~ A Happy, sacred, loving, laughing, reflective
and most of all JOY*FULL Christmas and Holiday season is heartily wished to ~

 ... the finest family of friends ~ fellow writers,
 ... the jaunty talented crew of the Harbinger*33,

 ... promotional publishing colleagues.
 ... and delighted discovering readers AT THE BIJOU

In oh so many ways, you Enlighten my life,
and stir how I wish to reach the sky the higher.

"When you look into the stars . . . 
you see the souls of heroes."

~ Frontline on CPTV "From Jesus To Christ", 23 December, 2009
as I type-designed this ... {No such thing in life as a coincidence}

HAPPY*CHRISTMAS! Merry all the holidays!
I love you guys . . . with gusto

~ Absolutely*Kate

Ah Paulie,

You know now we'll always leave Enlighten on for you . . . it's how writers see*feel*sense their way best. In goodness, there's no dark'side, unless it's Jodi writin' up a new thriller, but that's a chapter of another colour.

Thanks Aussie-accent'man for 'how' you say the doggone nice stuff you say. Happy*Christmas Paul. Jingle bell rock, Jesse.

Such beautiful defining words, K*te. Your "desert to travel, a star to discover" mixed with "see the souls of heroes" really touched me.I believe you deserve the Wordsmith Of heart and Splendiferousness award for 2009. What a true joy you are. Keep being you.

Love you,


ps. The picture with you and Prof by the ocean is amazing.
