christmas is getting very close.
“i celebrate christmas with willful glee.”
is it one of the hottest days of summer?
is it time for our annual
christmas in july/august celebration?
with long-time friends
odds and ends re-gifts to each other
that we’re highly likely
to re-gift to someone else at a later date
no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.
‘christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”

“you have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks and soldiers who file by the white house in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy and the flies die from happiness. you may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”
happy birthday u.s.a!

we came in empty handed and left with quite a colorful array of characters
such a fun day
spent in southwest detroit
shopping at the ‘honeybee market’
with our spanish teachers
for the pinatas
(one of my favorite things)
to take back to school
for our cinco de mayo celebrations.
“the celebration… you cannot practice it or anything.
it’s a moment when the excitement of your goal
makes you react to the moment.”
