Christmas warms my pagan bones with Christian joy.
It draws me to the ones I love – near and far; in breath and in spirit.
It concentrates celebration and hence magnifies self pity.
So I choose to gain gratitude and remember my good fortune.
I’m glad for all that I have. Nothing is lost or forgotten.
Thank you to all who keep the wheels of the world turning today.
For those who are lonely – I wave. If you are lost – I send light.
And I absorb all the loving Yuletide joy where ever I shall find it.
Out there and in here – here’s to a Happy Christmas, with love.
