Blue Sky and Snow


Edged by Christmas tree,

Freedom flies,

Snow vision to see

Blue is the skies.

One Line Wednesday–Lapse of Reason

One black cat (Rosie), one left-over Christmas tree trio, one lapse of reason.

Now do I put it up on the boxes again, just let it sit on the floor adding ambiance to a cold room, or give up and put it away for the year?

A Charlie Brown Christmas
A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles M. Schulz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have always related to Charlie Brown. He is wishy-washy in a debate as he is able to see both sides of the argument and then because of that both side are mean to him. The good side of being that way is that you can pick and chose and grow with your opinion. In the end, he always wins. Heck, the cartoons are headed with his name. That cute little wooden tree wins, too. Of course, for this former tree-book-lover turned Kindle-e-book-lover. tree-hugger, my choice of tree would have been the live potted kind that can be planted outside later. This year my tree was a recycled catalogue folded into the shape of a tree for collecting and displaying a few Christmas/Holiday cards. We don’t have room for trees in our tiny over crowded apartment.

Back to the review. I love the cartoon. Usually the book is better than Hollywood versions. In this case, not so much. I couldn’t read it at all on my Fire. I could barely read it on my Tablet. I didn’t even try on my Second Generation or Kindle Keyboard. There is no text-to-speech available. On those Kindles there is no color pictures. But for the purpose of handing a tablet to the child to listen to the story this stinks! And this book isn’t loanable. The only good way to read it is the PC Kindle. And hey. where is the great music? I miss Schroeder’s piano playing!

Though the Christmas tree, which has become just as commercialized as the rest of what used to be a Holy Day which was borrowed from pagan religions and even the date was changed for Christ’s birth to win over the pagans aligning closely with Solstice. SO let’s instead stay with Peace and Love and respect for our planet as steward. Care for people as Christ did for the woman at the well. The Angel said “Be not afraid.” Fear is what is causing the bigotry and wars. That to me is the real reason for the season: Peace and Love and Be Not Afraid. Possible that was the message of this illustrated book with font too small too read. Great pictures. though!
