Today is the day to log on to the internet and complete your Christmas shopping. Check the origin of your gifts: if the company is based in China, don’t bet on receiving your packages anytime this year (or maybe next) with the big backlog of cargo ships in limbo on the West Coast.
Books are a great gift. If your recipients enjoy poetry, I have two wonderful options to offer. And mine are printed in the USA! Both are available in either paperback or Kindle format.
Almanac: The Four Seasons is a small volume of poetry journeying through the year, season by season. It’s nice to sample one or two poems each morning with your coffee or tea.
Family Treasons follows heavier topics: child abuse, sexual abuse and domestic violence. 50% of the author’s royalties are to be donated to Domestic Violence Agencies: 25% to the Domestic Abuse Project of Delaware County (Pennsylvania) and 25% to Hubbard House. (Jacksonville, Florida). I had the honor to serve on the Board of Directors of each.
May your holiday season be filled with family, friends, and joy!
