A Snowy Californian Christmas for Horst... :))))

I was wrong about EXPLORE - 106.... well, well, one never knows!


Perhaps it was the wind that sang like angels

Anchored in a star-besotted sky,

Ululating round right-reasoned corners,

Lunging at three kings careening by,

Abroad with wonder, not quite knowing why.

(poet unknown - free poem, copyright Nicholas Gordon)


This is an exercise in 'amusing myself', dear friends.... I don't expect to go to EXPLORE with it but it was one of those 'Blue Mondays' which we all get. Loads to do and no motivation.... Tomorrow it's visits again, cooking, discussions, some singing and music maybe, no time for Flickr.


I dedicate this 'Christmas Card' to Horst *hb19 with my thanks for your kind soul. May we have many more happy encounters with this talented photographer!


Surely you all know it already: Horst is an ever creative person, very active, but what makes him dear to me is his unfailingly kind personality. He always comments with some friendly words; when he can bring himself to fave your pictures, he will and as astonishing it sounds, he even has time left for his grand children, for trips to the beach and taking more photos!!! Now go and check him out - you're in for a treat! :)


If this sounds like a testimonial, so be it. I felt like having some fun and because I was only today wondering how it must feel to live in the ever sunny Californian Desert, I thought he really should have a real Christmas card with snow and so.... :) Merry Christmas, Horst!
