it lingers somehow

there's something of christmas
still available
in the air

the coziness
the warmth
and especially 
the small richnesses of colour

because really
it isn't about a day
as much as it's about a state of being

an acceptance
that goodness
and kindness
are possible
and entirely available

if you are available
to them

I love this Steven and it is so true - the spirit can hang about all year if you will let it. Happy New Year to you.

uh huh. Christmas can be all the time and everywhere if we only let it.

pauline i am not surprised to read that you understand the idea . . . it's not as much about the overwhelming (albeit magical and fun) giving of gifts as it is about a sense of the possibility contained inside unconditional goodness . . . steven
