‘Tis the Season

Yes, it is the time of year when you may experience…

Latke lethargy

Sugar cookie comas

Relatives from the nut-bearing side of the tree

Office parties for which the boss has decided that home-cooked favorites would be so much nicer than catering.

Parking lot roulette

Music recitals that enlighten you to the striking similarities between Away in a Manger and elephants in heat.

Travel by plane, train, automobile, sleigh, subway, and/or camel to visit the third line item above

Three-hour pageants just to witness your child’s 30-second acting debut as a donkey’s rear end.

Fat cells who invite all of their friends, family, and acquaintances to the party on your rear end.


With all this holiday merriment, it's no surprise that we get a bit stressed by how little time we have to create our art of choice...

That’s when we need a friendly reminder that we’re really here to create A LIFE.

PROMPT: Whether you’re celebrating Hanukkah, Christmas, Solstice, Kwanzaa, or Festivus, this is your friendly reminder… And hey, chin up! It’s ALL material, after all.



  1. It's amazing how out imagination can give birth ! Hope you are having fun creating ! Maribeth

    1. Right back at ya, Maribeth! Have a joyous holiday season!

  2. Relatives from the nut-bearing side of the tree = so funny!

    I hope you're enjoying the holidays--and getting plenty of great material. Have fun, Barb!

    1. Wishing you the same, Dawn (um...without that nut-bearing bit). Happy Holidays to you and yours!
