· Aesthetically-Styled Christmas Prose — Re: Introductions ·
I thought to begin this way since holiday prose is my theme today. You may recall I've dealt with it before in X-Mas-Letter Blues, Two Christmas Letters, in Minor and Major Washington Style, and Epistolary Happy Holidays. Stylish and I recently finished our letter — and Soulful and Smart theirs — studies in contrast that, for fun, I thought to share.
You know my "Keep-It-Simple-Stupid" style — but Soulful's fuller, richer style suggests I might fatten mine.
I mean here's the too lean note I thought to start on:
What can I say, that it sustained, even in summer, my "summary" refrain?
By way of contrast, now compare Soulful's far more musical
Makes Styles want to take a big whiff, or bite, of lefse!
Oh, if you've wondered why I've posted so little lately, here's my too-simple answer: analagous office moves, bad rain storms, house repairs, bike farkles, belated Christmas chores, and my Soulfully-Smart, Savvily-Suave, and, I hope, Stylishly-Stylechoice writing.
So to everyone today, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
