This year’s Christmas card is one requested by my Uncle Jim. The farmhouse where he and his 5 siblings grew up is no longer there to go back and visit. But the memories remain so strong with me, that I know they are so much stronger for them. Wish I could go back in time to Christmas times spent there. Would look closely at the faces, take in the smells, and listen to voices and laughter. I was so close to doing that as I was painting from one of the few photos we have.
Christmas is the day that holds all time together. Alexander Smith
