ALL KINDS OF GIFTS

On a light note, here’s a poem that could be sung!

“O Karma, Dharma, pudding and pie,
gimme a break before I die;
grant me wisdom, will & wit,
purity, probity, pluck, and grit.
trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind,
gimme great abs & a steel-trap mind,
and forgive, Ye Gods, some humble advice —
these little blessings would suffice
to beget an earthly paradise:
make the bad people good —
and the good people nice;
and before our world goes over the brink,
teach the believers how to think.”

……………PHILLIP APPLEMAN, writer and
former English teacher at Indiana University.

Could this be called a piece of doggerel? It sings itself
and runs down the page and off into the wide blue yonder.

and now SOMETHING TO PONDER:

There are 4 days before Christmas that are free to take a
look at:
Sunday, 12/09
Sunday, 12/17
Friday, 12/14
Friday, 12/21
………..when, strapped for cash, I’m offering a SPECIAL
OPPORTUNITY to get an Inner Portrait for $100 .
on any one of those days.
That’s a saving of $40 each, either for yourself or as an
unexpected Christmas gift for a special person.
Usual time is at 10 a.m., takes 3 hours, and it will help me
buy Christmas presents.
…………………first come, first served.
………………………………………………………………………………

This is unusual, you regulars know for sure. We are living in
unusual times, and I ask for your suspended critical view of
this commercial message.

always with love,

Mom/Mimi/Toni/Antoinette
