HANUKKAH’S WELL AND GOOD, but it was a bit of a blue Christmas in casaCARA-land. As a non-celebrator, Christmas Day is often quiet, but this one was utterly silent and very, very long. I felt empty and flat, kind of like this:
I went out for a walk, my face at the ready to smile and pass on holiday greetings, but there were few people on the streets, and those I saw avoided eye contact. In the course of my perambulations, though, I realized it was a blue Christmas in a more welcome sense: the sky was brilliant, the air clear, the conditions perfect for my iPhone’s camera.
Boxing Day dawned ever bluer:
This last one is from a few days ago when the sky was more threatening. I’m including it, though, because I like it a lot.
Hope you all had a less lonely Christmas Day, and, well, it’s over now and we can all relax.
