love's pure light
It's time for another tender Tennessee Christmas, so I will not post for the next few days. Go home, find out what your family and friends are up to (As of 10pm, next year will bring three weddings and eight babies among mine.), watch a lot of football (the best matchups will be the Peach Bowl, the Fiesta Bowl, the Alamo Bowl, the Cotton Bowl, and, natch, the Rose Bowl), take some kids to look at lights (37th Street in Austin; George Jones's house in Franklin), help your mom bake cookies, light a candle and sing a carol on Saturday night, and be thankful for this precious silence that comes just once a year. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, happy holidays, and lots of love, y'all!
