I greeted the New Year with a dawn walk. Truthfully, I was hoping for one of those photographable moments, but the sky is solidly overcast, so instead there was simply a gradual brightening of the world, with no spectacular display of glory.
That's ok, really, because that is how enlightenment really happens most of the time. We wait for the big special moment, only, hopefully, to learn that we've carried the light within ourselves all along.
So here's to a season of birth, of bringing light to the darkness in all the ways that it is possible to do so. And since, I always think it is fitting that the New Year dawns in the middle of the Christmas season, a season of birth and joy, a season where we celebrate the coming of light out of the darkness, instead of sunrise, I'll share a photo of the lights reflected in the glass from my Christmas tree.
Say yes to the light. Say yes. And let your light shine and be reflected in the world.
