Leave a little bit of tinsel

So its time to pack away the Christmas decorations, recycle the tree and have another look at the cards as they come down wondering who the hell are George and Edna. We all look to the New Year – a new start and back to whatever work and challenges await. But here’s a tip. Leave a little bit of tinsel somewhere – atop the dresser, behind a painting on the wall, perhaps by the door moulding – just to remind you of the real spirit of Christmas that resides eternal in the heart. When sadness shifts into your soul or a dark depression hovers on the horizon of your days, take a look at your little bit of tinsel and remember the peace and joy that really never leaves us. It only gets clouded over as we live in life’s in-betweens. Also – if you’ve taken your decorations down already, then its not too late. Get yourself back up to the attic, or wherever they are stored, and grab yourself a little bit of the glittery stuff, for Santa’s sake (and yours).

Left with the use of my left arm/hand only, after a serious motor cycle accident in 2005, I am learning to adapt to life with a brachial plexus injury and have developed a style of playing guitar using open tunings. I love drawing, painting and generally messing around in a fairly loose fashion. Can't describe myself as an artist, but perhaps a doodler with intent.
