LOVE, UNITY, COMPASSION AND JOY

MY WISHES, ARE THEY SELFISH, NOT FOR MATERIAL THINGS, OR WEALTH?
I’M THANKFUL NOW FOR SHELTER, FOOD, AND A PORTION OF GOOD HEALTH!

BEST WISHES FOR YOUR GOOD WANTS….. AS WE ANTICIPATE THE NEW YEAR!

Pre Christmas Tree in the Back Bay

A concerned citizen reports on a poor unloved Christmas tree just lying on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall:

Perfectly good Christmas Tree left on Comm. Ave Mall @ Hereford St. Been there over 12 hours. Its about a 9 footer. It was probably too big for someone's apartment and they just ditched it.
