Christmas cards send a Message
Today’s blog is kicking off a 12-day run-up to Christmas Eve. Mostly visual, I hope you enjoy the spirit of the journey.
Every year, for more than 40, my family’s Christmas card reflected a visual involving a map or globe. Dad was a geography professor and Mom, as the family’s ‘creative director’, came up with this plan, made it happen, and kept it alive. In those days it was sometimes a hard job to find the perfect card, but she prevailed, with never the same card twice. A few years ago, while helping Mom downsize from her home of many years, I found a box with one of each card, carefully dated and saved.
So many of the cards remind me of the Christmases with my family and, of course, my Father – all precious moments; lens-artists challenge #127. I decided to scan them all and create a poster for Christmas 2019. We can’t all be together for the 2020 holidays, but I can share a few of my favorites through this blog. I hope they make you smile.
