It's that moment when you realize with just the right head tilt and bad lighting, a photo someone took of you and tagged on Facebook resembles a celebrity only, you know, not Angelina Jolie or Kate Beckinsale.
Every morning I get up early and read blogs. I read about 20 or so a day—some are friends, some are discoveries I've made throughout the year, some through twitter. With coffee in hand, I read and/or comment. Comments are important, are they not? It's nice to see clicks but for me, writing is all about connection and the comments? Well those are the conversations that connect. But that's a whole other post for a whole other time.

‘Twas two days after Christmas
Santa snug in his bed
The sleigh safely parked
The reindeer brushed, bathed and fed
In homes everywhere across cities and towns
Kids peered at their gifts with small grumpy frowns.

Then it grew louder, stronger and crisper
The shouts were soon heard all ‘cross the land
Did they all band together? Was this shouting a plan?
