A friend of mine received a card this year that said inside: “I wish you whatever makes you merry.”
I thought about borrowing the line but ultimately decided against it not least because I don’t know what makes you merry and I may not agree that it is a good thing, so I’m not going to issue you a general well wish that amounts to a blank check to pursue untold vices.
Ultimately I decided to keep the message rather simple and uninventive with a minimalistic “Merry Christmas”.
Next question: what kind of image? I could have easily gotten a million generic wintery images off of google image search, but that seems so cold. (Pun intended.)
So instead I used this image that I took with my smart phone. The background and location, you ask? I was walking one of mydogs the other day in the park beside my home when I came upon this scene that was so idyllic I half-expected to see Lucy’s faun (Mr. Tumnus) skipping through the trees.
So there you have it, my own pic combined with a suitably generic but still heartfelt:
I’ll be back blogging on December 27th.
