I had a Christmas post in mind, but then I read GioaJack's entry on Santa Claus (highly recommendable--go read it if you haven't already) and lost some momentum.

But then, that's the trouble I face with the challenge I've undertaken of keeping my personal day-to-day life out of the writing and off the 'net. Or at least off of GT. Heh.

Should I keep to generalities like the weather? A cold front is creeping over my mountain and bringing an expansive cloud with it.

My best friend's sister just welcomed the arrival of her first child; an event that has been long anticipated and eagerly desired.
Such a wonderful miracle, such a gift. Months of planning, months of wondering what he/she will be like, and months of prayers.

(i.e. Here be disjointed musings.)

The place I grew up had many small quirks, one of which was perhaps not so small. One of the locals had a restored P-51 Mustang and frequently took it for a low loop over the orchards and vineyards that surrounded my parents' house.
