Find The Mirth

There was a time, long ago, when we knew all about Christmas. We were small; we held it right in our hearts.  We have to work at it to find Christmas now, but it’s worth looking for.

Essayist Murr Brewster

The holidays can be challenging for some. It may take slowing down, focus, and practice finding the joy. It might be in a present moment, an unexpected upcoming moment, or unearthed in past memories.

Finding the mirth right now, during Covid, may help provide hope and optimism for the future and certainly a new memory for next year.

This year it may mean getting on your “goof” home alone, with immediate family, or your personal “quartanteam.”

Whatever it takes we wish you joy, play, lots of rest, reflection and hope during this holiday season. Ditch the chorus this year. Practice, perfect, and maybe record that vibe for next year’s holiday entertainment.

Life without play and a playful outlook is life without living. PLAYFULNESS is critical for adults and takes practice.
