Christensen explains "Although I like to think of the world as my classroom I cannot possibly
teach enough people as I'd like on my own. So like everyone else, sometimes I ask for a little
help from my 'friends.' Allow the Fish Wizard -identified by his fish, my favorite symbol for
unexpected everyday magic- to introduce himself. Carrying the weight of his responsibilities in
the hump of his back, he travels around to preach the good word and keep out a mindful eye for fresh recruits who share in my favorite notion that 'Believing is Seeing.' (Are you one of them?) He carries a staff with the Latin benediction 'blessed is the little fish.'"

"The hunchback is Everyman, and the hump is his burden. We all have burdens. The point is, as he sits there on that box, he may be concerned, but at the place where the angel spirit's finger touches the hump, there's a little light. I did this to remind us that most growth comes through dealing with adversity. If you pray for strength, God sends you a set of weights. The floor is my classic checkerboard pattern, symbolizing the opposing aspects of life - the light and the dark, the day and night, the yin and the yang... The hunchback is sitting on a box that says literally, in Latin, 'after clouds, sun.' That's supposed to remind all of us to always look for the silver lining."

Santa's Other Helpers and Mrs. Claus embody our childhood visions of this jolly couple, as they share their love of little winter birds and the holiday season. She's even wearing a genuine garnet necklace (perhaps a present from Mr. Claus...?).

James says: "You ever have one of those days? Don't worry; you're not alone. Unlike The Responsible Woman who's flying over the trees, this guy is plodding along with his responsibilities: he's got a boat full of people on his head - they represent all who he cares for and who support and motivate him, a medicine bag to care for the sick, a remote control to take charge of channel surfing, a nest egg on his back, a clock, a to-do list, an unusual hedgehog briefcase and he's pursuing the carrot of external motivation."
