Christmastown.... Closeups of our Holiday Cheer

Happy Christmas!

How They'll Pay the Electric Bill is the Real Miracle

This is 34th street in Baltimore. 
They call this 'The Miracle on 34th Street'. 
There's an obscene amount of lights on 34th street.  
Although a lot of fun, I think the real miracle is that they can pay the energy bill. 

An Un-Wintery Winter Walk

Kensington's Festival of Lights at the DC Temple is always a magical stroll.  
 Along with the array of shimmery lights, the grounds are open to the public with the life-size crèche, concerts, and exhibitions. 
The temple's lights and visitor center's music builds the Christmas spirit despite the muddy, rainy week.

Under the Brightest Star

One of my favourite things about the holidays in DC is the "Around the World" nativity exhibit.  
Hundreds of  crèches proudly displayed as the tranquil tunes seeped out of the theatre, reminded me of the total ubiquity of the season. The interpretations of the manger scene and a baby Jesus differ greatly from culture to culture but the love and effort to create each unique artifact is the same.   
So, whether Jesus is your truth and spiritual path (He's mine), we hope the peace and love of the season find you under your brightest star.

Lack of Posts and Something Real

REAL:   I blog and journal because its a relaxing way to keep record.  I don't do it for others, though the blog is open to read. 
LACK OF POSTS:   Life is busy and I've not been in the mood. 

Trying to rekindle the recording bug.
