Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the dark and stormy; brightly lit island of Nantucket! Great to be with ye on this holy night in most of the world, Christmas Eve, the night before Jesus was born roughly 2014 years ago? Not really quite sure on the math, nor is anyone else really, but what the hey, it’s Christmas Eve!
And a Happy and Merry Christmas to you and yours, even if you don’t celebrate it, perhaps opting for ‘A Festivis for the rest of us’, via an old Seinfeld reference that I am sure we are all quite tired of by now.
Whatever one’s belief, or complete absence of one to begin with, or maybe that ‘void’ is a recent thing, whatever ‘it’ is, one thing is for sure–the reality of a season, be it Christmas, Hanaka, or any number of other faiths that value love, family, joy and peace as much as ‘the rest of us’, like the one we are in right now–seems to bring out the best in people. (or the worst in people, to wit you have the power to avoid and completely disregard as the insanity that ‘it’ is after all).
Giving a person a smile as opposed to a frown. Opening a door instead of closing one in anger. Sending a card when you could have sent an email instead. Making ‘time’ by giving someone yours unconditionally. Turning that time into LOVE. More than just a sentiment, a Force, that travels faster than the speed of light to the power of infinity, brighter than a thousand suns…
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Sea Cape Cod everybody!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
