Merry Christmas, if you’re so inclined.

Date: December 25, 2015

Crane: 884

Days Spent on Project: 1038

Location: NW Portland, OR

Person I would have sent it to: TBD

Music I listened to while sewing: Today, it’s been The Shangri-Las! I’m falling down a 1960s “Girl Group” rabbit hole… The Ronettes, The Crystals, Martha and The Vendellas, and so on and so on…

“Is he a good dancer?”

“What do you mean is he a good dancer?”

“Well, how does he dance?”

“Close… very, VERY close.”

I love that exchange. That was the 60s!

Thoughts/Feelings behind the block: When I was a freshman at Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School in Indianapolis, Father Bischoff- at the year’s Opening Convocation- told all of us that we were gifts given to the world. Regardless of what you do today or how you feel about today or how you’re feeling in general- or maybe because of today and how you feel about today and how you’re feeling in general- remember that.

You yourself are indeed a gift.

Just a reminder for you and me and whoever else needs it today.
