Not Your Typical Christmas Card


This Margaret Bourke-White photo may be one of the greatest captures of all time. I just couldn't resist incorporating it in a bit of tongue in cheek commentary .. .. .. 'a la 2008 is looking more than a bit like 1929.
For some.
Past as Prologue and all that .

'Tis The Season ... . . to Share!

That's fantastic - and a bit sad; well, a commentary on our times (he who doesn't learn from his mistakes is doomed to repeat them). sigh.

I agree - in every way. I've found myself drawn to Walker Evan's photos lately. History repeats.

Thanks so much for your most thoughtful responses.
I was conflicted about this post.... . everyone seems so focused on just keeping the holidays light and lovely ; yet, in reality, we all see reminders that there are clouds over the sparkle.
