Just across the Green sits the dignity of our
strikingly beautiful
 St. Luke’s Church

P1010472

Where Lys and I will be serving the Chalice
and reading from Scripture, 
at both the 4:30 PM and the "Midnight" Christmas Eve services
("Midnight" actually begins with caroling at 10:30,
service at 11PM)
To complete the family scene,
 Skye will be singing in the Choir.

 St. Luke’s opens its doors to everyone...
You Are All Welcome.

DIANNE B'S DOs AND DON'Ts FOR CHRISTMAS 2013


DO give away every dime you can spare to all
of your favorite causes


DON’T Forget to Feed the Ducks, the Birds
and any wildlife that has to forage for food
under the snow and ice

Don’t Worry when the pine trees outside turn brown...it is their
natural shedding habit

DO take your kids (or anyone's kids) to see the lamb and the ducks at the Parrish Art Museum...

In front of the Robert Wilson Video Portrait
of William Pope L., they wait with delight to see
the little lamb go “BAAAA”

And at the other end of the room, Tucker Marder has installed a great panoply of ducks,  each one different from the other,
that  is completely age-inappropriate and delights everyone.

CHRISTMAS TREES in Manhattan

The Rock Center Tree, well, sure it is big and it is very glitzy,
but the tree at The Met is
THE Tree.

Untitled-1

At The Met, they have created the entire surrounding
countryside of Bethlehem

and there are no lights at all, but better still,
all of the Tree Ornaments are Angels

IMG_0572


Just like you, my dear readers, all angels...

I wish you a
 Dazzling Holiday
and an
Absolutely Glorious
New Year
