We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

Story of Christ's Birth through Beatles Music in Kirkwood

Reading the Kirkwood Webster Times the other day, I discovered the Kirkwood United Methodist Church will present The Gospel according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul, George & Ringo in their annual "Let It Be Christmas" series.  The rock opera-style musical will be performed at the Kirkwood Community Theatre, Robert Reim Theater, 12/9, 10 and 11 at 7:30pm.  There are reserved seats and general admission seats, reserved are already sold out for the 9th and 10th.  It sounds fascinating.  "The carefully selected collection of Beatles songs in our production are [sic] authentic to the lives of Mary and Joseph, who were real people going through genuine strife and, ultimately, genuine joy and wonder at the birth of Jesus.  Relating their story in modern language not only makes the story fresh, but very relatable and inviting."  Sounds like something right up MY alley for Christmas time, something new and different.  Go to www.kirkwoodumc.org for tickets, but hurry if you wish to go, they apparently normally sell out all 3 performances.

I was reading the KW Times to view the obituary for Madge Swisher, a long time member of my DAR Chapter and the step-mother of our classmate Dean Swisher.  Condolences to Dean and his family.  Turns out his step-sister lives in Wichita, right down the street from where Kert and I and our parents lived when we were in Wichita in 1952 to 1955 while dad worked at Boeing and Beech Aircraft.  Small world indeed.
