What a lovely shrine. The ducks give it such a friendly atmosphere.

Wishing your family all the best and strength throughout the next weeks...I sort of got caught myself all of a sudden missing my family a lot, reminiscing throughout Christmases past and the idea of never feeling the same happiness again....

wishing you and yers the same.

ahhhhh, maarts. it's such a complicated mix. you already know. the sadness, loss. the happiness of memories and being lucky enough to have em in the first place, those wunnerful people in our lives. i'm not sure i ever really have one without the other... although on any given day, i'll lean one way or the other. during christmas, i always try my best to focus on the positive, becuz it really does come down to the spirit of the thing, of life. i believe it. and i have people around me who need to keep their heart set on that as much as i do.

but just tween you and me? no, it's never easy, and this time of year in particular can pull up every emotion there is. (cut yerself lotsa slack, my friend.) there are times, if i'm at my most raw or stressed or vulnerable, when just seein a commercial with a lil boy and a lil girl opening their presents with delight on christmas morning can hit me like a train, those memories of mine. howeverrrrr, when i visit the family crypt, honestly, the overriding feeling for me is love, sweetness, pride. all the stuff there, from people who get all that with their duckies and their seashells and their messages and their carved thingies. i was gonna ramble on at length about how i think maybe people from new orleans have a different kinda relationship with cemeteries and crypts, with the whole notion of "alive" or "dead" or "here" or "gone". i suddenly realize that it's too hard to explain, though, mwhaha. not without sounding stark-raving, that is.

some day... one day... we will get plastered together and telllll stories. ya. we will lean on each other. until that day, consider yerself tightly hugggged and sweetly ::smacked:: merry christmas and happy new year, from the heart.

Same to you kath- to Reap and the merry clan! And I definitely feel that one day we are bound to meet up and keep that promise. It may not even involve cruiseships too! ;)

As far as you funny relationships go with the dead- oddly enough I was watching Billy Connolly doing a TV-show on death yesterday and he actually had some New Orleans-natives making some statements too....the comment that stuck with me is that 'we don't celebrate life enough'. Damned if that ain't the truth.

i just made the holiday trip down home. brought flowers and a gift for the spirit of beezledom. it occurs to me that i haven't posted a pic from the cemetery for a few years. i think it would be a good idea to show y'all the growing honorary collection over time. (the groundskeepers at metairie cemetery really are sooo groovy. they make sure everything stays the way it should be. they watch over all with luvvin care. they always have a lighter, too. my kinda people.)

Kath,

That is amazing and so touching .. I am at a loss for words.

Shalom

as is my tradition, i do the day-long rolling scroll on facebook. (and thanks be to everyone who went with me on it, as ever.)

but for anyone not there, the traditional sort of recap...

happy birthday, to the ever-present beezle, elizabeth erin, on this, what would've been her 25th. y'all know how this works. go forth and spread the spirit of beezledom and beezlery amongst those around you. hug yer loved ones. make up with an old friend. blare some cocteaus. support/slobber on a local artist. walk up to complete strangers and say, "ars gratia fucquin artis." (if they know what it means, give em a kiss.) in short, carpe the damn diem. life is, indeed, short. art, like beezleness, is long. ::smack::

a few pics on the roll this year...

under the thread i decided to name: great moments in elizabethan hair.

Yes, happy birthday to the beautiful Beezle! Thanks for posting the pics, Kath, both here and on FB. She was certainly a chip off the ol' block.
