Holiday Themes December 2022

Angel at the Door

Saturday December 10, 2022 - My daughter Zsia just had her entranceway and stairs redone and took a pic to show me. Her reflection looks like a spirit or angel coming through a doorway just in time for the holidays. Love this pic.

Ellie's Rooftop Sunset - Santa and Aliens

This speaks to me of an extraterrestrial encounter or the Myth, Math and Magic of Christmas.

Fort Hamilton

Tree Lighting Inside Fort Hamilton down the street from here

As I stood there, I could feel the energies of soldiers who were stationed at Fort Hamilton that I've read through the 31 years years I've lived in Bay Ridge. This felt stronger than Memorial Day, Veterans' Day, and the return of spirits on the anniversary of 9/11.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Day

Visiting the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree

Wednesday December 21, 2022

There's nothing like the energies of NYC during the holiday season especially when Christmas, Hanukkah, Capricorn, the Winter Solstice, and a New Moon conjunct - and you meet up with friends who want to share joy and forget the trials and tribulations that face us today.

We know about the energies of the city from the homeless and crime to the latest health crises to the Santas on the corner ringing their bells wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. As Santa winked and smiled at me I whispered and told him what I wanted but I'm keeping it a secret. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Risking the hazards of health and crime - I couldn't resist spending the afternoon in the city with friends as it was mild enough to walk around and take pics of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. Every street and neighborhood has its share of exciting things to do and places to visit with endless displays, restaurants, people doing last minute shopping, while others rush off to holiday adventures - this year as winter storm Elliot intensifies. I'm glad they didn't name the storm Ellie as this is a bad one that sweeps across the country - and as with all winter events is followed by a sigh of relief after its over ... the sun comes out and recovery begins.

Interview With Blake and Bryce the Winner of 'The Voice' Season 22

The winner of Season 22 on The Voice was Bryce Leatherwood, 22. As country music is my favorite - Bryce was my second choice after Bodie - the favorite to win - who shocked everyone - even Blake - when he lost. Bryce, from Woodstock, Georgia, is a Senior at Georgia Southern University completing a degree in business. He hopes to eventually manage his music career with help from his degree. Great job. Wishing all the finalists successful careers.
