Twas the Sixth Day of Christmas

Twas the Sixth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a stunning sunrise and a low hanging crystal.  The low part of the wreath is almost out of sight from from my six foot height.  But I crouched down low to get the shot, and was slow to get back up, what with the morning chill, and it’s crystal clear outside.

It’s clear that I am a lucky man.  We’ve gone out with friends, the past few days.  Have taken walks, and gotten our heart beats hopping, heating up the gym, or in my lovely’s case, biking and hiking up our hills.

We saw the SMUIN Christmas dance performance last night at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.  These are, to me, extreme athletes, with balance and poise.  It’s a magical experience to watch them move to music and each other.

I am grateful for my life.  I am grateful to be alive.  Peace be with you.
