There is naturally a buzz here with the anticipation of celebration and gifts. But it is a pretty chill buzz this year. Chill by all of us. There isn’t a flurry to do this, make that, buy things. Sure, we’re picking up here and there and making with our minds and hands, but it isn’t rushed.
It feels so good.
The highlights are times with friends, the advent spiral, and lots of just being.
Even the most perfect tree we just picked up yesterday sits in its most perfect spot sans lights and ornaments. Only a stand full water.
And this calm, this peace, this moment is just right as solstice nears and I prepare my heart for the gift of Christmas.
