Solstice tree

Last year my Ukranian friend brought me a tree which she had rescued from power line scrub. This tree could hold a few white lights and some fruit and birds, icicles, and glass was such a comfort in the darkest days and longest nights. My photos became a game in photoshop and helped me adventure into learning. This year Sofia brought me another tree...this from her land when she went out "shopping". It sat on the porch for a couple of weeks....I wasn't quite ready to take in a tree and give it glory. Now i have and only the images to take and I will offer up the glory of this year's boughs in a coming entry.....Mostly I have been shoveling and making those last red scarves of the year 2008. Happy Soltice to you all!

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
'Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la la la la la!

I put your name into this cool anagram-making site and here's some of what I got:
Agleam Genie -- perfect for standing next to your tree
Engage Email -- (or blog!)
Image An Glee

i have also been confused by the jolly of the season when I was more comfortable with contemplation, peace, sweet comforts....
Blessings to you
