Postcard from Up North

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. ~ Calvin Coolidge

(Twinkling lights on Main Street, in icy splendor. It was a wet, cold photo to take, but well worth it. May the spirit of Christmas be with us all, and may comfort and joy be yours this holiday season.)

    Another exquisite photo! I love how your photos are of subjects and scenes that most people glance at but are too busy to stop and really see the beauty right there in front of them. You capture that so perfectly. Merry Christmas to you, Maureen!
