Life sometimes manifests as confluences of currents that combine to increase the overall sensation of speed. Perhaps you've already noticed. I have. I will be busy enough this next week or so that posts here are likely to be sparse at best. We'll see what happens.

Meanwhile, I send out wishes for warmth and cheer to all!

Casablanca? Play it!

Striking image. All petals must fall, in time, from even the most beautiful rose.

I send you good thoughts, mb.

What an exquisite composition, the soft and yielding petals against the angularity of the piano lines.

Best and warmest to you too, MB!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from south-central Texas where it may not get much below forty degrees this vacation.

The sense of time is usually daunting, and seldom comforting. With this holiday season, I hope that time stands still, if only for a moment, for you to smile and hug your blessings.

Lovely photo! Really makes me think that I shouldn't dismiss all my slightly blurry photos so readily.

Happy holidays to you, MB.

Marja-Leena, an old movie was exactly what I was thinking of when I increased the grainy quality of the shot. I'm pleased you enjoyed it. Have a wonderful holiday, sparkled and red!

Sky, happy holidays to you and your hubby, too! I hope you are much warmer and better connected very soon!!! Take good care, friend.

Charlie, Casablanca it must be! Petals always fall, especially by the end of the week. Good thoughts to you, too, across the Big Pond.

Pauline, we must get you a camera one of these days! Happy holidays to you, too. Stay warm in that sweet little cottage of yours!

Jean, thank you. You and I, I hope, will both hold ourselves gently through the darkest part of the season, knowing the light does and will return. Happy holidays, dear Jean!

Polona, I hope your busy holidays are filled with good cheer! Not to mention more great photos and poems! ;-)

Bitterroot, the piano itself has always fascinated me visually because of its sensuous contrasts of light and dark, angles and curves... throw in a few petals and how could I not take a picture! Stay warm, E., whether in Wisconsin or Montana.

Pat, I reckon maybe so! Happy holidays to y'all, too!!

Becca, thanks, and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Amy, I hope your holidays are filled with love and that the adventures ahead in the new year bring you much happiness!

Patry, the very same to you! Warm wishes and love to a wonderful friend and writer!

Snowsparkle, it's always a pleasure to see you've been here, as it is to visit your blog. Enjoy your holidays!

Corey, may your holidays be filled with the same kind of generous light that you so freely give others!

Alan, I know you are familiar with the "whirl" — may your "whirl" be centered in love and joy this season!

Gautami, thank you. Your kind presence here is a gift.

Robin Andrea, you know it's reciprocal. Your thoughtful responses are always treasured.

Sage, thank you so much. May your celebrations be filled with light!

Richard, "a fine broth of a man" — speak for yourself! Thanks for your friendship.

Mermaid, your comment makes me smile and feel blessed to have you here. Love and peace to you.

Michelle, a fine compliment from a fine photographer, thank you. Don't spin yourself dizzy! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Dave, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've been having fun with the richnesses that low light can create, even with the soft focus. Happy holidays to you, too!

Zhoen, ewe too, ewe two! ;-)
