Setting a January 15th book deadline definitely will direct Christmas break. Hours have been spent at my computer, writing and re-writing sentences. Frankly, all of it is a blur at the moment. But I am trying to keep going. I am rather relieved to have an excuse to take the next few days off. This project has zapped my creative energy. Or I should say that my creativity is reserved for bringing Nebraska to life on my screen. This blog has had to be pushed to the back burner. But I still wanted to spread some Christmas cheer to my readers.
This time I will end my Christmas blog posts in a different way: in song. While I do like singing, I am not going to be the vocalist. Figuring out to film myself and post a song online is far more than I can handle at the moment. Instead I will stick to the professionals.
Mulberry Lane is a group of sisters who are involved in the music scenes. I am not sure that their song encompasses all of what Christmas in Nebraska means for me. (For one thing, church and celebrating Jesus’ birth is rather important). Yet I think they do a pretty good job of expressing the simplicity of Christmas celebrated in this state. Christmas is Nebraska is where I want to be!
