"Let's have a merry journey, and shout about how light is good and dark is not. What we should do is not future ourselves so much. We should now ourselves. "NOW thyself" is more important than "Know thyself." Reason is what tells us to ignore the present and live in the future. So all we do is make plans. We think that somewhere there are going to be green pastures. It's crazy. Heaven is nothing but a grand, monumental instance of future. Listen, now is good. Now is wonderful." ~ Mel Brooks

St. Nicholas Day

Upon his snow white steed
 With wind and lightning speed
St. Nicholas leaves the sky
And comes a riding by.
The little hare hops nigh
And lifts his nose up high.
The stag, with pointing horn,
Jumps over bush and thorn.
And all the creatures dear
Are drawing quickly near.
Before St. Nicholas bow
Their little heads so low.
But we will learn a tune
Of sun and star and moon,
And sing our happy lay,
Sing on St. Nicholas Day.
~ Traditional German poem
Wishing all who have been visited by the kindness and generosity of St. Nicholas a beautiful and heart~filled day xo
