Loneliness is the poverty of self; solitude is richness of self. ~May Sarton #qotd
I crave alone time as much as I crave connection. It wasn’t always this way, but now I find time alone soothes my soul and sparks creativity. You?
🎶On the eleventh day of December, my true love gave to me...🎶 Eleven pipers piping and the best colored denim - the #zipskinny!

Well, the holidays kick off tomorrow with Hanukkah at sundown, so happy holidays to all, no matter what you celebrate! Christmas is what my family celebrates, but we mainly focus on Christmas eve (Nochebuena), when we have a family dinner and sing villancicos (carols) until the wee hours. Then of course we celebrate New Year's. However, for Hispanics and Latinos it doesn't end there. We also celebrate the Epiphany on January 6th. On January 5th at night, there are big parades in the streets, with the Three Kings or the Three Wise Men. Kids put out their shoes that night and leave water and grass for the camels, and the next morning their shoes are filled with candy and they will also find gifts. Then in Spain (where I was born) consumerism again kicks in on January 7 when the "rebajas" (sales) start for the whole month. It's also the beginning of "la cuesta de enero" (January uphill journey so to speak), which means nobody has money because it was all spent on the holidays! I've also been fortunate to celebrate Hanukkah with Jewish friends and enjoyed the Festival of Lights. Whether we celebrate one tradition or another, I know we all have in our hearts the spirit of giving, and of sharing ourselves with others. What do YOU celebrate?
