What is a savior but the answer to our prayers. So we can celebrate Christmas every day if we count our blessings and be a savior to someone else. To expect salvation only somewhere in the afterlife is to undervalue the rich potential of every moment here and now...because "now" (which is forever) is all we've got!
The teachings and life of example which Jesus came to demonstrate said we can all be saviors. Celebrate Christmas every day by being someone's savior: even a simple kindness, easy as a compliment or an encouraging word. By "being", you'll realize that you have it to give. It's easier than you think, and a first step to the Peace on Earth we've dreamed about for so long.

- I am a writer, photographer and musician living in Los Angeles. In the last few years, new written work--numerous plays, screenplays, and two novels--have demonstrated this to be the most productive period of my life. The journal I have also kept for thirty-five years has, of late, become a personal sounding board for my thoughts on peace and the state of the world...about which I remain hopelessly optimistic! My writing here will be in tandem to video "Peace Talks" I have recorded, and which will be released throughout 2011. You're welcome to visit my website, the "Studio 5" link, to see my photographs. As a classically-trained pianist, I have been composing music all my life. Two guitar re-mixes of piano music are attached here, as well as several music videos, including "Consider Peace" the title track of an up-coming CD. Balancing writing, photography and music has been a long and challenging path...not to be recommended! Yet this very Aries diversity reflects an enthusiasm for the modern world of which I feel very much a part.
