On This One Night

The Sandias.


ome darkness, come light.

The photograph comes from New Mexico. The words come from Virginia. They seem to cover most of my life for the last 15 years.

On this Christmas Eve and — soon to be — Day, I’d like to wish every one of you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year.

I cannot tell you what 2022 will yield, but I’m pretty sure that if we stick together even the bad things will turn a little good.

As many of you know, this has been as busy a year as I’ve ever known. So, I’m going to take a break. I’ll be back on January 1, 2022.

I promise.

        That is really cold. I’ve been in that kind of weather only a few times. I’m not sure how my old body would do now.
