Like @BrandeewineB said on Twitter earlier today, it’s been tough getting here. Getting the words out, reflecting, going deep inside when there’s so much going on outside, celebrating light when there seems to be so much darkness in the world right now.
We keep it at the forefront of our minds, we search for something we can do, any way to use our own hands to put the bricks back together. And when that fails, we hope and we pray that someone will send us answers.
And in that spirit, I’m finally answering Kat’s prompt to me: What Five Things Would You Put On Your Chistmas Wish List?
I want everyone to get their happy ending. I want tumors to shrink and evaporate. I want Moms who miss their kids to be able to be stay at home if they choose and for little ones to send their roots down deep into the Earth and grow up big and strong. I want some god damn gun control.
And selfishly, because I’m a Yankee at heart, I want a little snow and ice, that big snap of a winter deep freeze that send us all scattering into our foxholes to sleep, dream, and reset.
What are you wishing for?
