Happy Holidays


This will be my last post of this year. I want to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has followed my blog and showed it be either liking my posts or contributed to the many fulfilling discussions here. I also want to thank you for the support you have shown me and all the kind remarks throughout the year.

As some of us are about to celebrate the holiday which is about to begin—myself included—it’s time for me to wish you all peace and harmony whether you are going to celebrate or not. 2016 has once again been a year of much violence and unrest, but also of much inspiration and positive development. We can only hope that times eventually will change to the better for all humankind.

I will take a rest from blogging during the Christmas Holiday. But I will be back in the new year. Until then; I wish you all happy holidays and/or happy new year.

    Merry Christmas dear Otto.

  33. As this year comes to an end and the new one begins, consider constructing a minuature ‘mueneco’ – featured in #4 of this story:


    I’ts a lot of fun, and can be cathartic as well. and yes, if in town, everyone burns the effigies in the street or else gather and burn them together..; leaping over the flames is a fun part of bringing in the new year!

    you’re burning away – not only the bad but also the good – saying goodbye to what’s passed and moving forward….

    many people also enjoy running around the block at midnight with an empty suitcase in hopes of doing lots of travel in the upcoming year!
