Get a Sense of It

on December 8, 2015

Don’t get me wrong.  I really like all seasons.  Each has its own special fun.  But, of course, there is something about the mandatory decorating and singing at this time of year.  It’s so great!

I find myself admiring the Christmas tree before I turn off the lights and eyeing the cards, received and to go out.

And don’t get me started on the food.  We have a bona fide pass on calories and sugar intake.  It’s not “just like Christmas”.  It’s Christmas.

This is a great time to dig into your memories and pull out a wonderful scene or story.  Close your eyes, take a deep breath and grab that file from your brain filing cabinet.  Then go write it down or add to something you had long-since forgotten.

Yes, the smell of balsam, the shine of a star, the taste of gingerbread, the touch of a snowflake on your cheek and even the sound of a Christmas ball smashing on the floor…are all great memories to write.
