window wishes

I'm in Montreal, Canada now for a bit of a break (just saw a Bob Dylan concert last night!) and for some reason, the holiday window decorations in the department store fill me with great joy:

Isn't it great? If I did not have such a dismal track record with Christmas books, I'd allow the hundred of ideas the window inspires turn into a book. Maybe I can look at it as a second career--what would be the job title? Window Displayer? Christmas Window Decorator?

Did you say Dylan? I'm seeing him tomorrow nite in NYC! Enjoy your time in Montreal and stay warm :)!

Yes, Dylan. It was great! Even in a packed stadium, it had a really nice understated, personal feel. I bet it's going to be great in NYC, too.

I'm just catching up with your blog after having limited computer time for 3 weeks. Glad Houston was fun, missed you by a few days in CT - wish I could've heard some of the speaches, LOVED the pumpkins, glad you waited the 2+ hours to vote, thanks for the gift book ideas (EXCELLENT list), and finally I'm a bit jealous of the Montreal/Dylan trip. Looking forward to reading more of your adventures, and tales of mouth watering treats!

Now seeing our profile pictures next to one another I realize I am a total copy cat - but don't you think everyone should put there hand inside the mouth of a lion at least once?!

Hi Jenny,
You shouldn't be jealous--you are in SHANGHAI! I am looking forward to reading your adventures.

Our profile pictures are mirror images, not only facing opposite directions but opposite seasons too. Neat!
