Being so close to the coast, we're supposed to get a foot, at least, so they say. They are saying it's going to be light though. Phew!!!!

And, I'm so thankful it's happening on a weekend where I have the men to help.

I got stuck so many times last year where it started snowing in the morning and I had to shovel the driveway by myself so my husband and son could get in. My driveway is like a short street, so it's a job to say the least to do it by myself, but I must say, I enjoy shoveling. Great exercise! And since, you are no longer on FB, I will share with you that I am trying to quit smoking for the 9000th time. Started chewing the gum yesterday. One smoke early this a.m. and so far so good. Shoveling would be a great distraction actually!

monicar - anyone can jump in on January 1st. Go on January 2nd ! :)

KarenZ - thanks for the picture and thr egreat story yesterday. A wonderful Christmas moment and memory.

monicar - good luck with the other things as well. You can do it.

No snow here in southeastern mass yet, but looking for 15 inches or so starting this evening. Have a friend of Matt's who is supposed to fly out to Milwaukee tomorrow at 11 AM - not looking likely.....

Be safe all - shovel slowly, take plenty of breaks, enjoy the white stuff.

Figure if I stop smoking now, I have a better chance of surviving the dunk in the ocean!!!

Jeff, funny you mention January 2. I'm actually going to be by the sea on the 2nd. Over the past years, a bunch of us have been smashing and burying colored glass on the beach. We are seaglass nuts, so it's like we are planting for summer harvesting. The amazing thing is, it works. We have smashed red glass in the past, which is a very hard color to find, but we've been finding it ever since we started doing this.

Every year though, I'm sorta awaiting an Arlo Guthrie Garbage Dump sorta thing to happen, where we all get arrested for littering!

Well, first, we spend the summer drinking as much as possible. HA! Just kidding. The wine drinkers do buy Luna Deluna or however you spell that which comes in a blue bottle, Skyy Vodka too. In the past, I have actually gone out to stores a few days after Xmas and bought red plates and glasses that no one bought for Xmas, for a buck a piece. One year, I had both kids put their arms out and loaded them up and told them to be careful on the way to the cash register. My daughter asked why, since we were just going to smash it anyway. Too funny.

We dig a big hole in the sand, put all the glass in, then take turns smashing huge rocks, thus shattering the glass. We cover up the hole with sand and let nature take it's course. When I get a minute at some point, I will post pictures of before the smash and after the smash!

If you said already, can you say again: what do sand and nature do to the smashed glass? Thnx!

It's been years since I've seen this much snow. I was relieved this morning to find I stll know how to drive in it, and tickled that my little prius was able to manuever up some steep, snow covered hills. Perfect weather as we approach the solstice. You all be safe out there.

The sand/water/motion of it tumbling smooth the glass. My mother started collecting it when I was probably about 7 or so. We would walk the beach for miles and stop in every pebble pile and look. To this day, I cannot walk the beach without looking down. Does a number on your neck!!!!

It's beautiful stuff. My friend's daughter has been making jewelry out of it and I got a beautiful pair of earring in our recent Yankee Swap and it all came from our beach. I will post some pics of the finished product too when I get a chance.

I have it in various size jars all around the house ...... green, brown, clear, blue, aqua, red, orange, yellow (the last 3 of which are colors you would normally never find but due to our seeding, we've found them)!

See how they said red is very rare???? I'm not telling anyone where my beach is. HA!

There's a group on the web that I joined but really haven't had much time to look through it, however did get to look at some projects people did with the stuff. There were some really cool things. Some day, when I have the time, I will create with it. I love to craft, but haven't had time for that in years.

Someone gave me a book about seaglass a few years back which was very interesting. They said factories along the shore are some of the best places to look because they used to just toss all the glass out the window.

There's black glass too, which I guess were from plates in the 1800s or something like that. They contain some sort of metal and can be found using a metal detector!!!! There's also a fluorescent kind that turns colors under a black light due to some chemical that was in it. Can't say I've found any black of fluorescent though.

There's a seaglass beach somewhere in Hawaii, I believe. My friends and I think we should fly down with empty suitcases and fill them up!

A memory from my childhood. My parents and I went over to one of the Boston Harbor Islands for a tour. I think I was about 10. We walked along the beach there, back when Boston Harbor was terribly polluted. There were HUGE pieces of seaglass and my mother was in her glory. We had nothing to put it in other than our pockets, so we looked like crazy people taking the boat back to Boston with every pocket we had bulging with seaglass!!!!

Marshfield! That's why we do it in the winter. Figure everybody will have their shoes on.

We bury it as deep as we can too and I'd bet by the next high tide, the stuff is taken right out into the ocean.

I'm going for it - Trolley Car and my Christmas/New Year memory comes from last year when we, that is Karen, Richard, Dean, Elaine and I travelled on the T from Harvard to the Hynes Convention Centre to see Ellis, Don and Rad perform a children's show.

As we were on the T we were living Trolley Car for real: Dean and Elaine were listening to it on the i-pod with each plugged into one side of the ear-piece. Karen I think that you might have a photo of them 'living the song'

Great Picture... Great Song...

Monica.. we will have to discuss in person the art of sea glass!!

I have a nice collection myself.. I would love to see some that you have made..... so much is manufactured in tumblers now.. but you can really tell the difference from wear and tear of sand,stone and waves.. the more triangular the piece the older or longer it has been rolling around on the shore... I have a couple of gold mine spots that you can only get to by boat... which my husband is happy oblige and bring me out "glassing" Well he does it so he can go fishing.. but..we're both happy :)

They land at her feet in the snow"

Folks,

As I stated originally, today - the First Day of Winter - ends our 10-day contest. I thought I'd end the contest with a few words about Hanukkah and Christmas taken from a book that I'm reading called Simple Abundance. Rest assured that I will tie this to Ellis Paul. :)

After a three-year guerilla campaign, the Maccabees were victorious and the temple was restored to Jewish worship. As part of their rededication ceremony (the word "Hanukkah" means dedication) the Maccabees began an eight-day purification rite, only to discover there was barely enough sacred oil to keep the temple menorah - a candleabrum with eight branches - lit for one day. Miraculously, the temple lamp burned continuoulsy for eight days. Ever since that time the Jewish people have observed Hanukkah in remembrance of their struggle for religious freedom and the miracle of restoration, symbolized by the abundance of oil. [stuff deleted then:] If it weren't for Hanukkah, we wouldn't be celebrating Christmas. There would have been no Jewish community for Jesus to have been born into. [stuff deleted then:] Those who follow the Christian path will discover, if they search for their roots, that by faith, they belong to the House of David. Jesus lived his entire life as an observant Jew. He celebrated Hanukkah as a child; the last supper was a Passover seder. The crowds who came to hear him called him "Rabbi", the Hebrew word for teacher. Perhaps our similarites and heritage are greater than our differences after all.

Then finally:

Sacred oil in a temple. Loaves and fishes on a mountainside. Miracles are of Spirit, not any one faith. Miracles are for anyone who believe. That is the heart of Hanukkah and the Soul fo Christmas. The more we allow ourselves to recognize the wisdom and truth in other spiritual paths, the closer to wholeness we become.

I think Ellis Paul says it best when he wrote: "Embrace what you have in common; celebrate what sets you apart."

Which brings us to Day Ten:

"Gonna whittle down the Scriptures
the Bible, the Koran
Gonna whittle 'em down to one phrase
any fool could understand
'love your fellow man' "
-- Ellis Paul

Happy Solstice! :)

Happy Solstice indeed ! Perhaps the peace that I see looking out over my snow covered backyard this morning can spread to one and all this season.

From President John Kennedy's address to American University:
So let us not be blind to our differences, but let us also direct attention to our common interests and the means by which those differences can be resolved. And if we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's futures. And we are all mortal.

"9 months to fix the world".

Christmas Story? I lived in Santa Fe, NM in 1987. On Christmas Eve we got about a foot of snow (remember I'm from Louisiana - snow is always a special thing). A group of us walked around town in the freshly fallen snow and marveled at the luminarias (small bags filled with sand and candles) that bordered every path. Halfway through our walk, I was introduced to a young lady who joined us on our walk. In storybook fashion, she later became my wife (not important which one...).

Also just preoreded the CD on Amazon for the release on the 12th. I need that to get to my sister in Albuquerque by the 22 so she can get it signed in person when he is out there in a few weeks...

Start spreading the news...

Great, Patti! Keep spreading the word! :)

My son went to the post office for me yesterday (Friday), so the 3 CDs are in the mail! :)

"Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

My CD went to NYC to my brother, but he's already a fan!!

Today is rescheduled seaglass smash day. In case anyone was wondering, I will NOT be going in the ocean, although the water is probably warmer than the air!

There's always next year, eh?

Mine went to a friend in Virginia (!?) who I haven't seen for years, but got her to listen to a little bit of his music a few weeks ago and she was interested. Didn't hurt that she remembers running in the same State Cross-Country Championships that he won a couple of years back.....
