As we embark on the longest day of the year in this hemisphere, I seek light.
Lighting our nightly advent candles.
Turning on lights as soon as the sun sits on the horizon.
Looking into people’s eyes for light as I walk by them.
Watching children’s light-filled ways.
Tonight, we went on an evening adventure seeking Christmas lights.
Pajama clad boys.
Ice cream in hand.
And look what this little light made at school today:
And this afternoon, I had a teary talk with my “light-filled” cousin who walked with us last Christmas.
Not really enough.
