christmas 2k1

christmas card no.15 --2001

this one was both last minute and uninspired.
after about five years of on again/off again, dani and i had split for good in september. about three weeks later, i had a revelation and understood that it was me, all me, my fear of commitment that never let her all the way in. to my life or my heart. still friends, i pleaded for a second chance, but she had had enough.
i was very down for the next few months.
add in 9/11 and mike's and my realization that we weren't going to be able to continue tellos without some money coming in, and i just couldn't find the christmas spirit. mike kept telling me that i had to do a card anyway--he loved 'em--but i think it was nick (cardy) who actually coerced me into it.
i dunno, maybe they were in league together.

christmas is just a week away!
ho ho ho!
smell ya later!

I think it's great. I love Hank's halo. Really a sweet card.

It is when we are down, that we need to tap into the holiday spirit the most.

Great to see Hank and his Halo make the card for another year. Brings a smile to my face.

these still keep getting better and better. and knowing where they go is sad, it's still very nice seeing the little guys in their crazy antics. and i agree with matt, they are very sweet.

I love the cards, which should go without saying but I'm going to say it anyway. *smile* And I admire you so much for being able to share so openingly with all of us... both your wonderful cards and yourself.
.. and Hank is precious with his litttle halo.
