Traditional exquisite concert with friends.
One asked about our favorite passage;
So many, mostly from Isaiah, prophesies.
Good fiends, good cheer, good will.
Blessed season for reflection and joy.
Brief morning snow blankets and quiets.
Classes complete, just grading remains.
Splendid students and colleagues, one and all.
A pleasurable craft to ply in this wondrous life.
Good will to all, and to all a good night on
This longest Solstice night of year 2013.
Onward to the next steps of the journey.
