Christmas greetings

The turning of seasons reminds me of a labyrinth...something that goes around, and has a center...maybe a spiral or?

It can even be connected to other round things, making a triple spiral labyrinth like this...here you use a finger or pen to follow the path, going into 3 centers on the way to the central one.




Remembering Christmas past...Muffin was a darling friend for 15 years.

Nativity in glass, santas, garlands, amaryllis in pots, pottery...it all brings us to celebrate the wheel of the year...like my Sepia Saturday friends suggest...Come on over here to see other fun posts on this meme!

A time to kindle the flame of friendship, and remember the return of light, but watching that fire is under control.

Today's quote:


"The world is not imperfect or slowly evolving along a path to perfection. No, it is perfect at every moment, every sin already carries grace in it." Hermann Hesse

  1. a triple labyrinth, very interesting, I have yet to visit a labyrinth in person, mazes have always intrigued me as well.

  2. The triple labyrinth is a clever take on the prompt picture's wagon wheel. Muffin looks adorable. Makes me remember our sweet Molly at Christmas when she used to steal all the bows off the packages under the tree. Don't know why she had such a 'thing' about bows, but she did. And the glass nativity is beautiful. Merry Christmas. Love the candlelight dinner too! :)

  4. I liked your interpretation of the wheel and the turning of the year - very original.

  5. The mesmerizing wheel design of the labyrinth might predate the actual invention of the wheel. It surely was part of civilizations that did not use the wheel. Candle light is also one of those ancient symbols we enjoy this time of year. I wish you a very happy holiday and warm new year.
