  1. A thoughtful meditation on the meaning of art, in the context of a mother still in mourning for her dead daughter. Here is something to savour, and remember: beauty, form, and redemption. Deep thoughts, indeed, Ron. Thank you for this holiday gift!

  2. Yes indeed – deep and meaningful. Redemption is the right word. Thank you, Ronald, for such a lovely picture at this special time of the year. Most appropriate.

    • Word on the hills has finally made it into the central plains of the Midwest. I have listen to the story and loved it. It’s the best Christmas story yet coming from my friend Ronald McKay I’m happy to be a new member of your association from now on, I will listen faithfully to your programs. This is Mariana Marinescu all the way from Kansas City USA merry Christmas and happy new year to all.

      • Well done, Mariana! As far as the US midwest!
        Buyt remember we met in Bucharest, Romania, not in the USA, so you can take credit for that! Happy New Year! Ron

      • Thanks, Mariana!
        It’s great to have one of my vdery first university students listen to and comment on my story and enjoy the Word On the Hills broadcast. Listen every week and enjoy! Best wishes, Ron

  3. A fitting story for the Christmas season, Ron. A stimulating meditation on art, family, and memory. Interesting to hear the embellishments of bells, music, and a female voice.

  4. A touching and meaningful story. You have a beautiful ability to convey those very personal and special feelings we can’t always articulate but recognize and relate to once they are spoken. Thank you.

    • Thanks for your words of appreciation, Marlene. Compliments are always welcome. I’m fortunate to be invited to contribute to Word on the Hills and be part of the vibrant regional writing community in this part of Ontario.

  5. Life, art, pain and emotion well combined to create a magnificent portrait of the reconciliation of the human essence. A truly moving and profound story that makes us reflect on similar moments experienced when faith is lacking and we need hope to cling to it. Congratulations, Mackay.

  7. What a lovely Christmas story, Ron! I’m hearing about Word on the Hills for the first time and this contact is bringing back lots of great memories of our summer holidays in Ontario. Best wishes to all from Scotland!

    • Thanks for listening and commenting, Jill. It was a fortunate day, indeed, when you and Lachlan arrived by canoe at our cottage!
      Happy New Year!
      Ron
