Thank you, David.

    Liebe Marina dir wünsche ich auch einen schönen sonnigen glücklichen 1 Mai mit vielen lieben Grüßen in Freundschaft Klaus

  2. I’m sitting here wearing my exquisite red velvet Santa hat, my green sweater with all the little candy canes on it, and my faux reindeer hoof bootie slippers (note: no reindeer were harmed during the production of the 100% synthetic fake fur). I have Elvis Presley’s Christms record on my old phonograph, and the grainy crackling fireplace video playing on my TV.

    I’m sitting here with an eggnog in each hand, looking at “Joy Overflowing” on my computer, and it’s so beautiful my face is experiencing “Tears Overflowing.” I’m transported with happiness by your lovely work, my dear Marina, and my Christmas is complete. And I’m sure glad I got here on time, because as you know, the Christmas Season only lasts till January 31st… : )

    A very Somewhat Belated Merry Christmas to the true master of line, mood, color, and artistic technique!!! : )

    • Merry Christmas, my dear friend and Happy New Year! I hope you get showered with beautiful gifts this holiday season and truly be ‘joy overflowing’ throughout the whole year! But wait, is it February already? Of course not. In our universe it’s whatever season we wish it to be, right?!!!! 😉

  3. I am back in the world of the living – see that this video and its sentiments have an even more profound meaning than when I posted it; after the terrible events in Paris ……..
    Hope you had a good start for the New Year and may it be a prosperous one, but in some ways uneventful & peaceful 🙂
    David.

    • Thank you, my dear David and thank you once again for sharing this video. It resonates deeply within me. Good to ‘see’ you back, my friend. Hope all is well and wish you too a prosperous year full of beauty, joy, health and peace! 🙂
