Although I know I will not be able to participate the entire time,
in keeping with the traditional annual Twelve Days of Mary
facilitated by the loving
I offer this simple painting, done in acrylic metallic gold.
In another traditional ceremony,
tonight is the night of the Rockefeller Center "Lighting of the Tree".
It was interesting to me to see the first tree,
installed in 1931 during the construction of Rockefeller Center.
Who would have thought it would become such a worldwide annual event
from such humble beginnings.
