“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of (or commentary about) websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).
I suppose it is arguable that the giving of gifts is ultimately self-serving for someone like me. For it always brings me great joy.
Oh, and it has been pointed out to me that purchasing gifts from individuals and small shops can double the joy. For it makes the giving all the more personal when the gift is obtained from someone not so unlike yourself.
Alas, I have included a reminder link at the end of my November posts in years past to encourage as many as will to consider obtaining handmade gifts from small operations, but I have really been out of sorts the past month or so. Thankfully, it is not yet too late to do so in time for Christmas.
Michael Lynch’s [Ryukyu Gallery] serves as a perfect example of what I am trying to convey. For his photography prints would make a fine addition to many a wall, and the more that sells, the less trouble he stays out of with his longsuffering wife.
Okay, I was just smarting off there. For Michael is usually a delight to correspond with, but he can be a cantankerous old coot at times. So, I need to take my shots when I can.
Oh yeah, obtaining gifts from individuals just keeps on giving. For I now consider Michael to be a very good friend, and I have met (so to speak) several others who appear to be just as personable.
So, would you consider at least giving a good look at what people like Michael have to offer? I think a good place to start would be through my [Thinking of Christmas Gifts in July] annual series, but they should not be hard to find elsewhere. If you find one that I should include next July, please let me know.
