I’m in a good holiday mood.
Not quite “Deck the Halls.” More like “Merry Christmas, Baby.”
My shopping is just about done. I have to work tomorrow. Then, I have the next three days to play jazzy Christmas songs and check out some of the more prominent light displays around the city. Sip a little red wine. Real chill.
As the reverie of Sagittarius season gives way to the serious business of Capricorn season this feels appropriate. Speaking of Capricorn, today is the Winter Solstice–the shortest day of the year after which we gain an extra minute of daylight each day. Considering how we celebrate our December holidays in the west–menorahs, advent candles, twinkling lights everywhere you turn–I like to think we’re all celebrating light returning to the world.
My secular, agnostic heart warms at the thought.
While we’re discussing returning to the light, the clarion call to return to personal blogging is getting louder. Read the following from Jason Koebler at Motherboard about why folks should replace Facebook with personal blogs. So ya know. Former personal blogger friends who may or may not be reading this…you can always come on home. For the holidays.
