Strange Mercy

"... and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"

I'm a former idealist turned 'defensive pessimist' who has concluded, after living on two coasts, two continents, and an island, that most of us spend our lives as prey, economically and psychologically. Awareness is the key to understanding this; but once we understand it, we may transcend it, choosing, when we can, to be neither prey nor predator.

"Christmas Time Is Here"

from "A Charlie Brown Christmas"

Christmas time is here,
Happiness and cheer;
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of year.

Snowflakes in the air,
Carols everywhere;
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share.

Sleigh bells in the air,
Beauty everywhere,
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there...

Christmas time is here,
We'll be drawing near;
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year...
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year.
