comfort and joy!

there's a vortex of emotions at this time of year. whether it's the holidays, the waning light or the increasing cold, there's a lot of seasonal blues and stress out there with the seasonal greens and tidings of comfort and joy! yesterday I received a 'holiday gift' from jan phillips. jan is described as a "visionary thought leader" and well she's just Über creative. I was moved by the words and the images of jan's video gift. I'm passing jan's gift along with the hopes that it will bring you the lift it brought me.

from jan's introduction to this 5 (+) minute video:

I fell in love with this song by Daniel Nahmod called One Power and put some of my photos to his music. It represents what I hope for, what I live for, and what I celebrate this time of year.... and helps you remember the gold that's buried all around.

Great song for this time of year. If only we followed that precept: we're all the same.

What an incredible world we live on, what a marvelous universe. Thanks Mr. Hubbel, for giving your name to the telescope that has revealed such amazing images. Wow.

Hey - Merry Return of the Light to you!! Thanks for the inspiring images.

Ah, so that's what Jan's gift is - I've been running around like a nut and haven't even opened the mail from her mailing list. Isn't she just wonderfully creative and inspiring though!

Great images and spirit. Having been in many of the places pictured, it was heartening to see you sharing an interest in the people, their resiliency and spirit.
