The Seekers – 2009

Back in 2004 I wrote a holiday message about our Christmas tree titled The Seekers.

It turned out to be one of the most popular essays of that era. 

We put up a Christmas tree last week for the first time since then. It was amazing to realize it had been five years since we’d either been in town or had a home to place a tree in.

This year’s Christmas tree resembles the tree in The Seekers. The only difference is that we’ve since collected so many objects from additional places around the world, there is no longer room for any balls, only lights and ornaments.

Otherwise, the story remains the same. You can read it here:

    Steph & Doug,

    Season’s Greetings to you both and thank you for your very educational and enlightening posts this past year. While our travels have been confined to the North American continent we have certainly been envious of your travels around the globe. Little did we know when we visited in the Billings, MT campground that we would be so richly enlightened as we have been by your exquisite photo journalism work.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS and best wishes in your future travels!!

    Betty & Dick
