If seeing is believing then all I want for Christmas is that we see…
It is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
There’s Christmas music 24 hours of the day (radio, TV, internet, on the streets, in your head, the one that you hum unconsciously).
There are Christmas lights and decorations on lawns and stoops of homes along the quietest streets and the busiest corners.
There’s anticipation in the air for some mystery and wonder.
There is a Santa Claus that lives in everyone’s heart.
Though without the means or the money, and there are miles, rules, illnesses and the pandemic that separate us from our loved ones, there is still the wish, hope and desire in our hearts and imagination to make dreams come true.
