|Our Bubby and his oh-so-closeness|
Here at the gateway of the year,
may we strive to make good cheer.
In our revels shall joy abound,
and sorrow be cast underground.
-Caitlin Matthews: Sun Still; Sun Return
Upon beginning the last full week before Christmas, may we all make an effort to feel our feet on the ground, hear the birds and the wind and the crackling fires, smell the evergreens and the woodsmoke and the fruits of holiday baking, taste even the simplest of fares, and feel more within each day than just the looming climax of the season. Omnia tempus habent! (There is time for everything!)
