Spirit of the child

"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home"
Charles Dickens.

Today was supposed to be shitake's post, but unfortunately she's having internet problems, so i've had to fill in.

The lady in this photo really sums up the spirit of the season for me. She exuded joy every bit as much as the other merry-go-rounders, who were all more than 50 years her junior. Her husband was a fellow photographer; we joked and shared a few moments discussing her zeal, whilst taking some pictures.

Wishing each and everyone a loving and peaceful season, which I hope you can celebrate in the spirit of the child.
