"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

peace on earth

Texas in Africa is on hiatus until January 4. I'll leave you with these lyrics from one of my favorite carols. They've always seemed appropriate for those of use whose lives involve too much war and not enough time to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. May your holidays be filled with peace and joy.

And man, at war with man, hears not
The love-song which they bring;
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
And hear the angels sing.
