The interior passage of the Porta da Vila, the main gate into the Portuguese walled city of Obidos. The chapel on the balcony is decorated with blue and white 18th century (1740-1740) glazed tiles, called azulejo. The tiles depict the Passion of Christ and the painted ceiling represents the crown of thorns.

2017 has ended. We have all survived, I hope. Welcome to 2018. Wishing my family, friends, fellow bloggers and anyone looking at this post a wonderful and prosperous new year.
Andrea Bocelli and Mary J. Blige. I love this version.
I am a bit short in holiday spirit this year. Glum about the United States, the world, the environment . . . I could go on. So, to help my mood I am going to post some of my favorite Christmas and Holiday songs. They won’t be in any special order, just ones I have played and replayed over the years. Some of them might be religious, even though I’m not. But the spirit of giving, celebrating, sharing, and caring (that is Christmas to me) is in all of us, regardless of our faith or lack thereof.
