On this December day when the snow has been falling, drifting, covering much of everything, thankfully as the sun retreats, the sparkle and shine of Christmas lights relieve the gloom and blessedly light up the darkness of the night. – C.G.
“A winter’s day
In a deep and dark December;
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.”
– Simon and Garfunkel lyrics: “I am a rock, I am an island”
