And So This Is Christmas...

I'm quite sure no one ever checks my blog anymore. But that's alright, I'm still allowed to write in it, right?
I am so relieved that it is Christmas time. But sincerely not for the presents. That would be selfish. I just like the spirit everyone has. Sometimes I lack spirit myself, so I need help from others to find it.
My friend Emma and I are having a holiday party. It's supposed to be very sophisticated and cocktail party-ish. I have a really nice outfit to wear. I'm so proud of myself for figuring it out. It's a high waisted red skirt and a white shirt and a golden belt. That probably sounds strange. If you know anything about Mary Kate or Ashley, it resembles something they might be seen wearing.
For Christmas this year I get to go to Las Vegas with my grandma! We're going to see the Beatle's Love. I'm really, really excited. I'm sure it'll be really one of a kind. And maybe it won't be as cold as it is here.

I've discovered a beautiful author. I haven't read much of his material at all yet, so I'm really anxious to get some of it. I did, however, find this poem today. I think it's quite beautiful. His name is Richard Brautigan by the way.


"The Second Kingdom"
In the first kingdom
of the stars,
everything is always
half-beautiful.

Your fingernails
are angels
sleeping after
a long night
of making love.

The sound of
your eyes: snow
coming down
the stairs
of the wind.

Your hair
is the color
of God picking
flowers.

In the second
kingdom of the stars
there is only

you

Hey Claire!
I always check your blog :-) and I also don't write that much...
It sounds like you will have great holidays! I'm just at home and 4 days a friend of mine comes.
I wish you and your family a Marry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Love, Charly

Oh my gosh, Claire! (It's me, Brina, with probably a link that will not take you to my old blog. I don't know how to access it anymore!)

You found Richard Brautigan? You lovely girl...I just about absorbed every single word he wrote when I was your age and a bit older. We had "IN Watermelon Sugar", his book, on our coffee table throughout my hippie high school years. I love that you discovered him.

And please tell, how was Beatles LOVE? Joe and I have been in Vegas so often lately but haven't yet seen it.

I hope it was as magical as you anticipated.

Belated Merry Christmas to my favorite young guitarist!

Love,
Brina in Minnesota
