Merry Christmas Everybody!!!

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” ― Charles Dickens

Christmas Party

Dimity, Sharon and Elena

Dimity Powell: “In between wind, hair in the face and too much sugar, it was most enjoyable!!! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!”

Christmas in the Park

“Anything is good if it’s made of chocolate.” ― Jo Brand

Joan Small: ” Another wonderful – and informal – Christmas party for the Helensvale Writers’ Group in the park at Paradise Point. Here are some windswept but happy photos thanks to the inimitable Dimity Powell.”

Writers from the Gold Coast

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”― Mark Twain

Helensvale Writers

“As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.” – Amy Poehler

Elena Ornig: “John Paul Warren said: ‘True leaders bring out your personal best. They ignite your human potential’. I believe that our diverse group has exactly what he meant, the great leader – Beryl Carney. She is never loud like me but she has a gift to quietly ignite my human potential. Thank you, Beryl for being wiser.”

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” ― Calvin Coolidge

Great time with collegues

“Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” ― Conrad Hilton


Christmas present, and Christmas past, both help create precious memories that last.

Merry Christmas Everybody!!!
