This is Jaffa on Christmas Eve...I visit my neighbours and am given a sunflower...
Wandering from church to church,
there are no choirs singing, no censers being swung.
Instead, busloads of tourists being taken on guided tours of the Holy Land on its holiest night. The flash of cameras, the chatter about things that have no meaning except to those chattering.
So I walk to through the sculpture courtyard, disappointed.And discover 2 pieces that I have never noticed before.
I like surprises!
To all my family, and to my friends new and old,
May the goodwill and joy of the holidays
Be with you all through the coming year.
Merry Christmas to all,
And to all a good night!
