Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Eric, what a wonderful collection you have. You have displayed them all with dignified lighting and composition, making them larger than life. I especially enjoy the detail, down to the sometimes loose threads. Great stuff.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

This is a jolly Santa! And...I've never seen Santa accompanied by a polar bear! But thinking that polar bears might disappear in the coming might be that Santa would lend a helping hand to make people more aware that the animal world is shrinking out there, in Natureland....

17 Dec 2011 10:37am

@Japanalia: Thank you very much Gabriela! Yes, these magnificent animals are definitely being threatened by the climactic changes we are seeing in the arctic! ;-)

Never seen one with a little baby polar bear before, and it looks so devoted as Santa's
robe flows down beautifully, as Santa lights the way forward !~
