Michael Peter Smith, December E-News

Little Falls, NJ  – Winter, 1948

A Note from Michael
It’s occurred to me lately that the Blessings Apparent of Christmas gradually change throughout one’s life. When I was seven it was that the Lionels came out of their boxes.When I was in eighth grade Christmas was the big plaid flannel shirts my godmother Kay O’Reilly, who worked at Bamberger’s, used to give me. This year I’m grateful for my family, and for being allowed to do what I do for a living. However precarious both things are in this chancey world, I’m grateful, and I do hope you have reasons to be grateful too. Season’s Greetings, OK Bye (Bye Lullee Lullay).

When things look grim and tattered
It’s the love she gives him that matters
Truth be told, it love he gives to her
That’s gold and frankincense and myrrh
( Listen to the song,  The Magi, Michael Smith )
