Christmas Light

This year, I have a somewhat different urge toward Christmas.

Things are different and interesting and good.

I don't feel like I need to bring out all the boxes of decorations and haven't put the traditional pieces in every nook and cranny.

I also notice that not every house in the neighborhood has lights. We're all experiencing the new economy, the new way of taking in the world and our response is lighter, different and maybe even simpler.

For me, it's more honest and grounded. More of Advent stillness and anticipation.

I don't know quite what to make of it. And I like it.
