Christmas Eve 2019

Christmas Eve Luminarias

One of my very favorite days (or perhaps I should say evenings), this year Christmas Eve washed out completely in a steady rain that began this afternoon. I confess I didn’t even try to go out and take photos — luminarias, made from brown paper lunch bags and votive candles, just don’t do that well in the rain. So I’m offering a photo I took 12 years ago, on Christmas Eve of 2007.

I wish you and yours warm, dry, happy and safe holidays!


Passover/Easter Pasqueflowers

Wild Pasqueflowers

It’s said that pasqueflowers derive their name from the Hebrew word “pesach” (for Passover) or perhaps from the Christian “paschal mystery” (for Easter). In any case, both are celebrated today and these little wild pasqueflowers showed up just yesterday on the east side of the Sandias. Perfect timing!

May you find much joy in whatever you’re celebrating today, even if it’s something as simple as having survived another day. 🙂
