Warm Christmas Wishes from Around the Photoblogosphere

The other day, I met a friend of mine for a coffee.  "I love this time of year," she said. "I know.  I especially love RIGHT NOW -- you know, when there are just a few days left before Christmas, and most of the shopping and preparations are done, and things suddenly seem to get still and quiet with ... waiting.  I mean, yes, there's some last minute stuff, but school's out, and the tree's up, everything's all decorated and there's just this sort of expectation in the air ..."...more

December Views: Capturing Peaceful Moments Through Photographs

A few days ago, I was surfing the 'net, hopping from link to link (as you do), and I came across this post from a blog I'd never read before, Hippy Urban Girl.  The post explains her idea called "December views" -- in essence, since December is often a frenetic busy time for most of us as we celebrate, wind down old years and get ready for new ones, she plans to use her blog by limiting its words, and instead expressing herself contemplatively through images, each day of the month.  It is her way of slowing down, and helping her readers slow down as well. ...more
