In my heart I must be Sami, as the Sami people believe everything in nature has a spirit. First Nations believe this as well. Enjoy this peaceful few moments in the beautiful landscape of the Arctic.
We want to wish you a peaceful and happy holiday season, in whatever way your family celebrates this time of year, whether it is Solstice, Hannukah, Yuletide festivities, Kwanzaa, Diwali............or celebrating the simple joy of being alive on this beautiful planet.
We hope you and your loved ones enjoy gathering together, and that peace and happiness find you, wherever you are.
Thank you to Mary, our intrepid captain, for another year of hard work behind the scenes, and to our staff: Susan, Rosemary, and Sumana, for a year of interesting and inspiring weekly features.
And most of all, thank you to each one of you, for coming back week after week. Truly, without you, we would not be here. Thank you for sharing poetry and time with us. We look forward to another year of new poems in 2019!
We will return January 6th with the first Poetry Pantry of the New Year. Until then, stay safe, keep warm, and keep your pen handy. Wishing you and your family the joys of the season, and a brilliant New Year, as our planet slowly turns us back towards the light.
