So the South Coast Chorale’s Holidaze concert is coming up… um TOMORROW! It will be fabulous get your tickets if you haven’t slacker!
This holiday season has been different for me. I usually dread the holidays for many many many reasons but I’ve been trying to go through the craze differently this year.
I got to do caroling with the Chorale and have survived the holiday hype for our show, which did I mention is going to be fabulous?!
The Center LB will be open on Christmas Day and I’ll be kicking it there with my community and friends, video games, chess, poker, snacks and festiveness. I even helped my coworker decorate which was not only decidedly ungrinchy of me but also soothed my soul. My main wish for this holiday season is that I may be a blessing to others, that I may find ways to give and to share the gifts that matter most, friendship, kindness, compassion, love, time, and energy.
Today I visited my homegrrl Kimmy’s blog and found the best letter to Santa evah! Well, okay second only to mine when I wrote to Santa to find out if he really existed and peppered my letter with “no offense”s to make sure I wouldn’t miss out on the loot if the dude was real. Isagani’s letter made me smile big though. With his earnest wisdom he captured the essence of the season. It’s okay to want cool shit for yourself. Who doesn’t?! Honestly! But we also want cool shit for those we love. And it’s a blessing to be able to love abundantly!
So, that’s my Christmas wish for y’all! Cool shit for you and yours. That’s about as maudlin as I’m bound to get for now.
