"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Christmas week

from Jonathan:
Your Week AheadHappy er.... Merry um... Well now, what exactly ARE we all supposed to be celebrating this week?
The baby Santa, born in a reindeer's stable at the time when the rising Sun changed direction along the horizon? The Jesus who turned over the moneylenders' tables so we could all run up credit card bills to celebrate his birthday? Is this Christmas? Xmas? Saturnalia? Or the Solstice?
Whatever it is, the planets suggest that, this year, more people may feel inclined to question convention than ever before. That's no bad thing.
