This photo has become a tradition for this blog on each Christmas Eve since 2010. This ornament is appropriate, as it was spied that year hanging in a vendor’s booth at the Christmas Market in Vienna, Austria.

I do believe I missed last year, but we were busy traveling the world. Goddess and I spent the first half of this year continuing those travels, spending time with friends and family all over the world.  We’ve settled down for a spell to see how that suits us.

Know that our wish for you is to have a peaceful end of the calendar year adhering to whatever practices bring you comfort and joy.

Hopefully you will find a bit of relaxation in there too.

Christmas Eve Globe Lights Ornament by Bill Anders Photography



May tell a story.

Or they may capture a moment.

Or they may do both.

Sometimes they stand on their own. 

Other times they build on each other.

Ceiling Lights


Two different views.

One just is.  It’s self-indulgent because I love lines.

The other presents several possible stories.

None linear.

Any ideas?
