ghosts of christmas past...

christmas is an amazing time of year.
i love the build up of anticipation and the energy that
surrounds the night of magic and wonder.
for me, there is a dark side.
it is a painfully beautiful time,
filled with joy and dark shadows lurking.
gorgeous and gut wrenching.
my heart light and heavy.
it's almost as if life catches up with
me at one time.
and the older i get,
the more catching up.
it is at once festive and fun,
and somber and reflective.
whatever christmas is for you...
if you celebrate or not,  
i wish you peace, love and light.
