Around Christmas time, I usually design a greeting card to send out to my Facebook friends and others. It is something that I enjoy doing as a celebration of the season. This past year, even though I had some new graphics software that I was eager to try out, my Christmas muse deserted me. (Maybe it was because I had just lost a very dear friend. Plus, I must admit, the presidential election did not turn out as I had hoped.) The muse who arrived in her place directed me to put on some good music and do what felt right. What resulted was very good advice from one of my favorite musicians. I sent it out with love and best wishes to all my Facebook friends, particularly to those who, like me, might have been struggling a bit to find the joy.
