"All The Pleasure In Life..."
"...all the pleasure in life are nothing if we have no one to share them with..."
What a poignant sentence. Regrettably, I cannot claim the credit - it is not mine; an unknown person out there formulated it and typed it in the google search. And behold, they found themselves here, as my blog came up on top of the page. This sentence, by sheer coincidence, summarizes eloquently the essence of what my blog is all about. I know that grammatically the sentence is slightly off, but this is what someone typed and this sentence led him or her here. At least that is what the little tracker on my page told me. I hope they were not too disappointed in what they found.
I am amazed every time to find people from all over the world stopping by. Most of all I find it interesting to see how/why they found my place.
During the last month, it has been mostly because of this post. It seems that many people are struggling with one problem; what to write in a Christmas card. Many stumble upon my page by making a search for a combination of words "write" and "Christmas card(s)", although sorry to say, I do not offer any advice on such writing in that post.
So what do I write in my Christmas cards? It is actually very simple; I always write from the heart. I never write anything I truly do not feel. Coincidentally, staying in touch means sharing. Sharing wishes or sentiments about a season or an experience. And as someone put it so expressively; a pleasure is truly a pleasure first when we can share it with someone. So, a simple "Wish you were here..." will always be very appropriate.
