Holiday Adventure in the Enchanted Forest’
|Jimmy under the Christmas stars|
Hello from Jimmy
And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. *1
As the days pass and we are rushing around getting ready for the holidays, it is always nice to take a mental break and just breathe.
Sometimes, we are so busy getting from point A to point B, we forget to appreciate the wonders of life.
Fortunately our friend and photographer Jimmy Wilson reminds us that there`s beauty in the world all over if we just stop and look. We were surprised to receive another letter from Jimmy today, with the photograph pictured above inside. This time he wrote the following:
Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have this wish I wish tonight.*
It is good to hear from Jimmy as he is happily wandering around his favorite place, taking photos with his camera, capturing life with his heart.
PS…We at IK just heard through the grapevine that Jimmy has just dined with some elves on their way to the North Pole. Out near a crystal blue frozen lake, they ate to their hearts’ content fresh blueberry scones made from wild berries picked out in the forest and the finest jam, sweetened by Asian persimmons.
