For Unto us a Child is Born -- 2011

The Adoration of the Magi
Fra Angelico and Fillipo Lippi

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be upon his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

For those who are wondering where JMB is these days, I am quite well but seem to have lost my muse for blogging for the moment. Fortunately Moggs is keeping things alive here while I "waste" too much time in Second Life. I have become the owner of three art galleries there and hold regular exhibits for Second Life artists. Who would have thought I would actually become an art curator and even a Second Life photographer. Here is the Christmas card I made to send out in Second Life as JMB Balogh. It's called The Carol Singer and features JMB dressed as a Victorian lady.

To everyone who is celebrating this feast, may I wish you and your families a very Happy and Holy Christmas.

From Handel's Messiah the wonderful chorus, For unto us a child is born.

Hope you had a good Christmas, Joan, and that your art gallery did a thriving trade.

Wishing you a very successful and healthy 2012!
