Purpose

Like fiber artists, writers are people who like to pull disparate material together; solitary strands, swatches, and twists take on new meaning when woven, pieced, or braided together for a purpose. In fiber art, that purpose might be to clothe, decorate, or inspire. In story, writers work with words and images to endless purpose—to entertain, inform, shock, arouse…it’s a long list.

Last Christmas we upset tradition. We abandoned our adult children, cold-shouldered Santa and slipped off to Barbados. Our escapade had the intended consequences. It pared the Christmas craziness down to zero. This year we are starting over; redefining traditions in more satisfying ways. We’ve trimmed the high calorie Christmas—the shopping spree, the 12 foot tree, the cooking and baking, the wrapping and mailing—to the small plate version, a main course and two sides.
