Playing for Change

To my blog followers, I must apologize if you have been checking in daily and finding the same old thing every day with scant updates. Like many, I've been so involved in holiday preparations, festivities, and visits, that I've neglected this part of my daily routine. I will be returning to my regular schedule of 5 to 6 blogs per week shortly after the New Year, but until then, I believe I will be too occupied with LIFE to blog very much.

I had a minute to breathe this evening, as I sit here with a glass of eggnog (yum!) in front of my computer watching a variety of videos that have found their way to me and thinking about how much I enjoy my life. I am so fortunate to have family and friends that are the salt of the earth and a life filled with love and art and kindnesses. I have a husband that couldn't be more perfect for me and two incredible daughters that teach us as much as we teach them. Sure, there are things in my life that I wouldn't mind changing, but they are being changed as I write and in the meantime I'll just be grateful for all of the good in my life and work on trying to make sure that those that I care deeply about know that I do.

Inspiration can come from many places and from inspiration comes motivation and then creation and from there, appreciation. In the spirit of the holidays---ALL of the winter holidays that we celebrate on this planet--I would like to share with you another video from "Playing for Change". Every time I watch one of their videos, I am inspired to pass on their message of peace. Their inspiration, motivation, and creations definitely earn my appreciation and I hope that this earns yours, too.

It is unlikely I will be posting another blog before December 26th, so until my next blog post, I'm sending you love, peace, and inspiration and a most wonderful rest of 2009! And for those of you who celebrate Christmas: MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
