Life is Beautiful!

For a sophomore college class many years ago, I designed and painted a poster which depicted my philosophy of life.  Across the very top of the design were the words,  Life is Beautiful.

One of the anonymously written critiques I received from a classmate had nothing to do with the merits of my work.  Instead what I received was a scolding.   I was told that in view of the harsh realities of life with its bloody global conflicts, hunger, racial discrimination, rampant poverty, etc., my work a mockery to the many in pain.  I paraphrase because I do not recall her exact words, but you get the idea.

Well, I hope that none of you who see this post  will be like that pitiful creature.   If we are joyful, there is a reason, especially at this time of year.

Here’s one in your eye, Father Clyde!

Our Christmas recess continues.
