Another Merry Christmas wish to to +lynn paden , who seems to always post something that sparks a memory or relates an event of interest. She likely considers me a nuisance most of the time, but she is gracious and understanding when I unravel the thread of comments on her posts.

Lynn is also a poet who has developed a voice that emotionally relates the intricacies of personal miscommunication with the music of reason; a difficult melding. I have looked forward to her verses on G+ for six years. All the best Lynn --

In the early days of G+. people often posted suggested Circles of people to follow; however, I populated my circles by searching for subjects in which I was interested, and by looking at the homepages of people who made interesting comments on posts that I followed. I have made special posts this holiday season to my oldest friends here on G+, and now wish to say to : +Frederick Andrew , +Assia Alexandrova , +Marko Bosscher , +Ana Mihailović , +Katherine Bond , +Kristin Milton , +Ajda Boksic Filipovic (if you are sober), +T.W. Cook , +Geri Walton , +Catherine Curzon , +Bozena Wojtaszek , +Mallika Raj , +vintage everyday , +Scout Paget , +Rea de Miranda , +Kooi Hwei Lee , +Franca Francesca , +Benoit St-Pierre , and to my poets +Lilium Candidum and +Bri , and my newest friend, +AVA HOKUSAI  - and to all that follow +7 Island Sweet Poet's Page , Merry Christmas! ( I know I have left out some special mentions - feel free to give me a "Bah Humbug" in the comments!)

The gifts of your entertainment, information, knowledge, and friendship make my life more enjoyable the entire year. Thank you all.

I had difficulty thinking of a Christmas post worthy of my good friend on G+, +Pietro Montevecchio , who has the eternal soul of a classicist, and whose rare posts are like the bottle of fine wine one opens only on special occasions in order to contemplate the quiet joys of living.

I've have always considered +Dirk Puehl , +Ivana Lepojev , and +Pietro Montevecchio  as the magi of G+, bringing gold, frankincense, and myrrh, with me acting as the jester/servant/valet carrying a little drum - the one not mentioned by St. Matthew when writing his gospel. : )

Ivana left us a couple of year ago - but my gift, Pietro, is I believe, her last posting. Merry Christmas my friend, and also a very Merry Christmas to +Ivana Lepojev , who is missed.
Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!
― William Arthur Ward

Happy New Year, G+ :)

Aloha and Merry Christmas to one of my oldest friends on G+, +Geo. Tirebiter , who like me, is a grandfather; he was in the U.S. Army and I served in the USCG -as did his son; and we both have law enforcement experience. George is interested and stays current in photography; and his gifted vignettes of his time in Viet Nam and as a policeman in Hawai'i are riveting and usually amusing readings. Many of us following his posts have tried to encourage George to assemble a book. Have a great a 2017 Geo. T !

A Christmas gift - and a warning for +Armida Evony , who has an affinity for Iceland and is often plagued by Gnomes - who are now studying to be engineers!
