Christmas Eve morning had breakfast in the Square with some of the boys. Bought a pocket knife for 60 pesos, which I’ll have to leave here. About three dollars USD.￼ Walked back to the place to rest up, read, write, work on pictures, Facebook etc.￼
Went to the party at Kevin’s. Later that night people were exploding fire crackers all night long. Didn’t stop until 4 am.
Christmas morning had breakfast with Buddha at Scallions. Dinner party at Bruce’s at 4:00. In between I walked the streets.

Is he thinking, “Shall I kill something or go to an open mic? Which of these two things should I do?”
There was a woodcutting operation on one side of me. All day long cutting wood with a power saw.
There were fires in the street and fireworks all night long to celebrate Christmas.
Last night I went to a party put on by the Third Street Association here in Louisville, Kentucky. It was in a beautiful old Victorian home. For while I thought I was lost in the Ingmar Bergman film, Fanny and Alexander or the Short Story The Dead, by James Joyce. Such was the beauty of the home I went to and the magical quality of the experience.
Both the stories were about a Christmas celebration among family and friends in spacious beautiful old homes decorated for the occasion. Both stories were a celebration of the love of family and friends and the human nature we are all heir too.
The House on Third was full of great Christmas cheer, fun, and laughter.

“His soul swooned softly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.”
