Now the candles burn at both ends.


  1. Ooh! I love Annie, hour 7! But I'm a nut for Christmas. ;)

  2. We have this theory about the inevitability of Christmas. I also am into the idea of our skewed Miami perception of Christmas traditions.

  3. I like where this conversation went. 7, 8, 9, 10, and 16 are all tops! ;)

  4. Thanks, Geddes and Annie, for a wonderful art experience. Looking forward to hanging mine.
