It's Christmas Eve.

A few hours ago we stopped doing Christmas-Eve stuff, Orion and Pete and me, and put on our coats and got in the car and drove up the mountains. We went around curve after curve, up and up to a spot where home is a tiny sprinkle of lights and the sky is darker and the distant stars look milky---a place where you can stand in the quiet air with a quiet mind and look deeply into that vast space.

I wish everyone a merry sense of wonder.

How lovely.

I can't think of a better thing to do on Christmas Eve.

That is my idea of a perfect Christmas Eve. I popped out late at night to look at the stars as well. They are particularly magical on a chilly winter's night. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that the rest of 2006 is enjoyable as well.
