    My carriage drawn by a team Slowpoke has finally arrived so that I can delivery a reply teehee! I’m getting back into the rhythm of pokecommunity at last after a technological failure that held me back. I’m happy to return. Things are looking pretty around your profile as usual.

    How are you Lina? I hope your Christmas holidays were amazing my friend! Also wishing you an extraordinary new year!

    I'll throw some spoilers tags on this just because my message ended up much bigger than I expected it to, and I don't want to gobble up your whole profile. Enter if you dare!

    Spoiler:

    There are indeed a lot of good adaptations of a Christmas Carol. I love pretty much every version I have seen too. Picking a favorite Christmas Carol is darn near impossible, most of them are 5 star classics. I’m tempted to pick the Muppets Christmas Carol because it makes me laugh so, and Michael Caine is just as great of an Ebeneezer Scrooge as any.

    Choosing a Christmas Carol is very hard though because there are different elements I like from each version, and always enjoy the messages of goodwill and justice in the writing of Dickens that permeates through every adapton

    You had an excellent Christmas movie list! How did I remember to watch Frosty the Snowman, but forget to also see Rudolph? T_T
    The adorable gif is cheering me up though. And at least I didn’t forget The Peanuts this time! I recently received the honor of being called Linus. That might be a little generous for me, I thought that I was more of a Lucy, but I’ll take the compliment.

    I also enjoyed watching video several ballets during the Christmas holidays. The Nutctacker with its enchanted giant Christmas tree is one that we see performed often in my family. There is a local production every year in my hometown, and my mom likes to cart everyone off to the show. It is I think somewhat nostalgic for her as dancing was yet another one of her talents, and she was a sugar plum fairy in her day. We also collect lots of dvds of nutcracker ballets Bolshoi, Dresden, the American Ballet company and more. My favorite Nutcracker prince I think is from the Bolshoi 1978 Vladmir Vassiliev. My favorite Clara is Alina Somova from 2013 Marinsky.

    I was glad they used Misty Copeland in the Nuctacker movie. I found myself a new favorite dancer in Misty after I just recently saw a video from La Scala of her dancing Romeo and Juliet.

    The peach pallette sounds lovely! I bet your mom loved it. My mom is a bit of a sticky fingers too. Fortunately my cosmetics are safe because we have different complexions and don’t generally wear the same colors. But she is very nosy about my essential oils. I try to hide my bottles, but the peppermint, clove and lavender have all mysteriously disappeared. I shall have to investigate.

    She definitely loves the herb garden!! I'm not loving it so much though because that ultra violet light is a lot more annoying than I thought it would be. She keeps it in the kitchen, displaying it with pride, and the whole home ends up looking like a lighthouse even when every other light is turned off.*hiss* I feel like a vampire perishing under extreme sunlight!!

    I hope that you get to the United Kingdom too Lina. A journey back to where your ancestors came from.

    My toes have tapped to a Celtic tune more than once. On last Saint Patrick’s day I was lucky enough to be invited to this wonderful concert of traveling Celtic tenors. All of them had the voices of angels.

    My, what an interesting background you have! French, Celtic, Russian. No wonder you are so artistically-inclined. You might have an impressionist painter, dance impresario or pioneer of fashion somewhere in your family tree. As Hellen Keller once said, “There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his.”

    History and world culture is fascinating to me, and I have decided to perform an ancestry dna test to find out more about my own heritage. I’ve been a little reluctant because they’re awfully pricey, and it still is only a little piece of the puzzle because such tests can only show you about the last 6 generations of your ancestry unbroken I believe. Still, I will happily take any new information I can get when I have some spare change. It is all part of your past.

    My mother spent some time looking through the archives at genealogy.com and had some success tracing her European heritage, which she says is U.K and French. She told me her father’s last name Wharton is an anglization of the French Quarton/ Charonton. I have no idea about the etymology so you would probably know better than I with your French-speaking skills.

    My mother passes down a lot of colorful family lore, and says that we have some Native American ancestry too on her mother’s side. I have no idea whether this is true or just a legend, but her mother’s mother was said to be half Cherokee Indian. We don’t have documents to verify any Native American ancestors, though it is an interesting possibility. Who knows? America is a melting pot of so many different cultures.

    Since we are traveling through many different countries in Africa this summer, Madagascar, Kenya, Tanzania, I wish to find out where my father’s ancestors came from before we go on vacation, and maybe visit that country. We are likely to have West African roots on my dad’s side because it was mostly people from the west coast who were brought to the United States through the transatlantic slave trade. But where were our forefathers from Mali? Ghana? Togo? I’d love to know.

    If you travel to Japan you must tell me about your adventures there! Take photos, and live the good life for me.

    Buddhism is indeed fascinating. I was also raised Christian, yet I have always enjoyed learning about lots of different religions ever since the 6th grade when I first got to study Greek mythology. :)

    Some people view Buddhism as a philosophy rather than a religion at its core level. Since Buddhism does not have personal deities, I can see why it could be studied as a philosophy. It is at least not an ideology in the way that one might expect. For Buddhists the Buddha is not someone you worship. It is not the same as Christians would worship Jesus. This was one of the key distinctions for me as a western outsider looking in, contrasting Buddhism with other Eastern religions like Shintoism or Hinduism that have a polytheist belief system.

    Buddhism is not denying the existence of a God above us either, it is just not about explaining the origins of the universe. It is neutral. What Buddhism is about is letting go of the ego, and freedom from suffering. Buddhists believe anyone can be a Buddha, and the practices that we typically associate with Buddhism such as charity, meditation, simple diet and lifestyle are techniques for disconnecting from our current material world to find enlightenment, or that “serenity” you referred to so accurately.

    I think attaining such a level peace of mind is something we can all respect and let into our own lives to live more constructively and help others as well as our selves, whether we do it as Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Muslims or by another name, and think I that this is fundamentally what we all do seek ultimately.

    I’m the one that is rambling now I guess, but my conversations with you always lead to such interesting places that you’ll have to forgive me if I also get overly-excited ^_^

    I’m sending many blessings your way, and hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.

    I keep forgetting that most schools have a semestered system - my high school left all the exams for the end of the year and most our courses were year long. I know this is an important year for you because of university applications, good luck on your finals!

    Dearest,

    How are you? The Christmas hour draws closer!

    I'm beginning that winter club so if you wish to share any of your decorations our doors will be open to you in Clubhouses. We just got our tree yesterday, and ore burning copal and frankincense and myrhh.

    Sitting by the tree reading sounds sublime. I went with my aunt and uncle recently to a musical staging of Christmas Carol in our community, and I was impressed by how much of the dialogue from the book was incoporated. It has gotten me in the mood to read a Christmas Carol again. It is wonderful! I love Charles Dickens. i have read A Tale of Two Cities too, and need to get started on many more.

    I have not seen The Family Stone, but it looks heartwarming. I really enjoyed seeing Disney's Nutcracker in theaters. This weekend I will be watching the Chronicles of Narnia of Movies. It isn't aired too often during the Holidays, even though C.S Lewis wrote it as a Christian allegory, and the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe even has Santa Claus in it. My favorite entry in the film series is Prince Caspian.

    You juggle a whole lot girl, between high school, volunteering, work and maybe even preparing for college. Its almost like there are two of you. Are you sure that you are not using a time-turner to do it all like Hermione Granger in Harry Potter? :)

    That gingerbread scented candle sounds exciting! I would like to buy a little gingerbread house to assemble for Christmas. I baked my last batch of gingerbread cookies for my dad. My parents are divorced I may have mentioned. My dad usually likes to travel to warm climates during Christmas because the cold doesn't agree with him. He'll pick places like Jamaica or Cuba, as tropical as he can get. Right now he is at the beach. So I baked him tins full of gingerbread to take with him because it is his favorite. He did invite me to go with him, but I dunno. I guess I'm more of a homebody and would rather stay surrounded by friends here, at least on the holiday. My dad is traveling to Kilimanjaro this summer, and I'm coming with him. I bought him for Christmas a replica of a west African sword I ordered from Novica as a reminder of our travels.

    Perfume is also a great gift! I would love some! I never give it as gift though because I am a bit of a hedonist and want to greedily keep it for myself. I keep an apothecary of essential oils on hand, lavender, rose, pine, lemon, jasmine, clove, ginger, peppermint.

    Hopefully Michelle's memoirs are a nice read for your family. I usually don't go heavily into politics, but I feel compelled to say that the Obamas were a very nice face for America, it was a little like having the Kennedy family again, beautiful, charismatic, intelligent, friendly. As a progressive there are some things I wish Obama had done differently, like passing a public option at least through reconciliation. I believe healthcare is a human right no matter how poor you may he. I also wish he had named Hillary to the supreme court instead of secretary of state. I think she was too much of war hawk for that position. That being said, I would still like to go back to the Obama years. I think the Paris Climate agreement was a step in the right direction for environmental. I think Obama was good on many social issues as well and hope that a Candidate closer to him will emerge in 2020 in the US.

    As for cosmetic shopping, I'd love to know what eye shadow pallet you picked out. I may have mentioned this before, but I was in uniformed schools since elementary, so now that I am free to be who I want I just love makeup and clothes and a chance to express myself through visuals in a way that I wasn't always allowed to.

    What I bought for my mom for Christmas was a uv light indoor planter to grow herbs in. She loves to garden, and has had her eyes on this same model for awhile. It has a copper finish, and she loves that look for her kitchen.

    Yes, my mom was something of an idol for me in my youngest years. Such a beautiful and talented lady, generous and a lot of fun, spoils me rotten.That doesn't mean we never disagree on things. Sometimes money issues become a problem, and we have some political differences, her views are evolving more conservatively, which I hear is not usually as we age. But I love to hang out with her, we talk everyday. She's told me a lot of interesting stories about her life and many travels and adventures and colorful people she has met. We can always talk about a movie together or anything. She was really helpful to me this fall when I was going through some issues with an ex-boyfriend, opening up about her own life. She helped me get out of a situation that I now understand as I study psychology was quite dangerous.

    I haven't traveled to Italy yet, but I did volunteer abroad in Spain. I loved the Reina Sofia musuem, and the food and the metro systems. If only the states would get on board with efficient mass transportation. It can be a problem outside of New York and D.C.

    One place I really would like to go is the U.K. my dad's been there before, and he decided that so the flight to Africa isn't too long we are going to stop over in Europe, just chill ij London for a few days, hop a bullet train to France, and from there on cross the Mediterranean and go to Africa.

    I'm curious about the United Kingdom for the rich Celtic music. I also want to see Shakespeare performed at the Globe Theater. My dad also sayshehad a lot of fun in Ireland.

    There are many places I want to go though. I am really interested in visiting Japan. And my new boyfriend shares an avid love of travel with me, and we have talked about possibly even going there together some day. I want to see Noh plays, sit in a tea house, partake in festivals, visit Shinto shrines, maybe sup with the legendary chef Jiro.

    This message was the "future sight" of emails it was delayed awhile, and when it finally came it was enormous base power...by that I mean really long. Sorry for talking your ear off Ninetales, but I missed you and had quite a bit of catching up to do to answer your different vms all in one jumbo-size message. If you need time to recharge and respond feel free.

    I hope you had a really awesome birthday!
