It is surprising how the holidays can bring out the best, and the worst in us. I believe and see the best in people. I like to catch people being good and it is an easier job during this time of year. What is it about this time of year? Perhaps it is a forgotten primal knowledge that surviving a long cold winter is easier when you work together.
We share the bounty of the things we have, and reach out to others, validating our shared existence. It is as if the holidays grant our souls license to emerge from the depths where they hide. If only for a little while.
What will you do to preserve the holiday spirit?
Keep on writing.
