New Year’s Eve 2018


Celebrating is an art

you can’t be ordinary

but must be part Crayola box

part fearless visionary.

The virtue of the party hat

is very widely known

and if your name is Emmy

there’ll be an ice cream cone.

Here’s celebrating you, dear reader,

and those you hold most dear!

May there be good aplenty

in your coming year!



Happy New Year, dear reader!

The old year was tough on optimism, but you as readers and fellow bloggers

have made many a bright spot in it. Thanks!


I’m not sure who took this picture, but once again here is the irrepressible Emmy

celebrating everything.




Connections: September 15.17

I am so old

that I can remember

a time we decorated

only in December.

What were we thinking?

Why didn’t we see

the whole twelve months




Thanks again to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives

and to the D.J. Berg sense of celebration.
