Little fir tree

We must learn to see the world anew
Albert Einstein

Mr EinsteinĀ was right, of course, so I seek outĀ timesĀ of stillness, simply to gaze, sometimes, upon what is before me, allowing silence to colour, hearten, illuminate, imagine, recollect and suggest inĀ all that I see.

Hence deep moments with a little four-foot fir tree. Installed festal guest in our home just a few hours ago, its sweet scented simplicity, bedecked in tiny coloured lights, is both warm-familiar and mystery to me.

And tonight, by grace of contemplation and gift of imagination, each lamp, steady and true, brings heartfeltĀ and thankful nearnesses to mind, with you, and with you, and with you (dear fellow writers, over there) too.
