Heart to Heart


Yesterday I had so much fun photographing our STAIR  students at Independent Presbyterian Church.  It was the Christmas Party for the Tues/Thurs. group and after their snack, they came into the church parlor around the big tree and sang a few songs with Mrs. Robinson while anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus and his delightful Elf.  Santa took each child on  his lap and presented them with a book from their Tues and Thurs tutors, along with a stocking FULL of fun... and a new toothbrush.  After Santa left the room, the kids met with their tutors, opened their presents and had a look inside their stockings.  One boy, found Santa making his escape to the sleigh and had a few personal moments to chat about what he wanted.  He ended with , "How are you getting to the North Pole?" Elf Cathy and I replied, "With the reindeer of course!"

Virginia, thank you for this because, after all that went on last week, it makes my heart swell with emotion at the good that can and is being done in America. Your photo is powerful, honey. And the one from yesterday is perfect--I think the low light made it have sort of a fantasy mood which is, to tell the truth, what Santa's all about, a swell fantasy that we all wish could last forever and ever.

Nah, Santa should go for a Boeing 777, upgraded, of course. More champagne, please!
