merry and bright

As the holidays fade into ordinary time, these are a few of the moments I’m savoring:

  • watching people’s personalities being imprinted onto gingerbread men
  • private moments of affection in the midst of a crowd
  • the way a simple piece of clothing can carry the weight of family connection
  • music making whether solo or tandem
  • the various qualities of light this time of year–multicolored smudges on the wall from Christmas tree lights, candlelit staining the floor, weak winter sun fading across muted brown tree trunks
  • the omnipresent tree as backdrop for all family activities
  • that one last game before bed
  • tossing coins into the train bed for good luck
  • Baby-tidian’s comfortableness in the many willing baby-holding arms
