Christmas Tree Hill
Alpine Lake (below the Xmas Tree)
About as High as I want to be today
Reflecting on the Roots of Goodness
Look Ma, no hands. . .or feet!
My limbs in the limbs
Continuing my tradition, on my 60th!
Part of this tradition is a good, exhilarating walk in the natural beauty that’s so much more refreshing and renewing and relaxing than all the “stuff” that people say we “have” to do to celebrate the season.

miraculously in the New York Times.
If that’s Mary and Jesus, let’s hope they aren’t coming to America
One of the best commentaries on the “Real Jesus” that I’ve read lately:
Jesus in America Today: Spitten Upon, Beaten, Banned (SF Chronicle)
“Being Hanukkah in a Christmas World”
Reminds me of when I was a single father raising my daughter to delight in celebrating both holidays. She still remembers her friends at school asking if she was Jewish. I was already doing interfaith work and teaching world scriptures, so claiming just one religion didn’t make much sense. Does it now?
