December begins

One of my earliest posts featured George Winston's album, December. The first song,Thanksgiving begins my Christmas year after year. I think it is perfect to offer thanks at the very start of this most wonderful of months. With thanksgiving in our hearts, the true meaning of the season may be revealed.

  4. Very, very nice. I heart George W. and the video was pretty too. I so admire composers - esp. for the piano. I wish my brain could do what theirs does. If you have a chance to look for Joe Hisaishi (sp?) on Youtube you will find some music I am betting you will love. Try "Rain" ad "Summer" esp. Happy Christmas. (Hmmm, my verification word is "stinc" - what could it portend).

  8. One of my favorite albums also. I bought it first in cassette form and was pleased to find it later as a CD.
    Now, if I can only find the box with holiday CD's before December is past.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
