Maria’s Bedlam Farm Holiday Wreath

by Jon Katz

Tonight, Maria gathered the final elements of her Bedlam Farm Holiday Wreath. We hung it over the “Heal” sign on the back porch.

I’ll be blogging on New Year’s Day for sure, but I wanted to get a jump on wishing all of the people reading this the most peaceful, loving, and meaningful New Year.

We’ve stuck together this long, I am proud and happy to do it all through 2022. I hoped you get loved, and I hope you love who you can.

I am grateful to have you in my life and thanks for putting up with me, good or bad. Happy New Year.


  1. The wreath is amazing, as is the placement over the HEAL sign. Happy New Year to you and Maria! Looking forward to more posts in 2022!

  2. Happy New Year, Jon – and to Maria.
