people were softer yesterday
smiles were larger. the anxiety wasn't apparent. back seats of the cars in the not so crowded parking lots were full of packages. thermal shirts at old navy were only five dollars. i bought 6 of them for my son. why not. they only had pastel colors left in large. i think he'll love them.
the weather was warm enough to leave your boots at home. grey slush replaced the white snow. the day seemed longer than usual. not by minutes. but by an hour at least. we ate leftovers for dinner and pepperidge farm almond cookies for dessert. why do they only have that flavor at christmas time. they're good enough to have year round. maybe i should write them a letter.
i just opened up the mail. a christmas card from my friend kim was filled with glitter which is now all over my couch and sticking to my fingers. it made me laugh. and curse a little. and then laugh some more. oh i love that girl.
now i know for sure it's christmas
i hope all of you are softer
now that christmas is just hours away. now that it's close enough to touch.
i'm ready. at least i think i am.
have you thought about your "word" for next year
i'm on my fourth year of "words"
first it was "see" and then "focus" and then "kurva" which is sanskrit for "one who does"
and i think i did something but often question if it was enough.
i think i know what my word for this year will be
i need a few more days just to make sure
it feels right
so think about your "word"
i'd love to hear all about it the first of january
i really would
