After surviving the weekend, with a few pointed comments from himself, I'm trying to loosen up and enjoy the preamble to the holiday. How is it that every year the holiday rush gets worse? I don't think it is just me, our society at large seems to be moving at light speed year-round and December seems to be spent at warp 10. I want to just disengage from the world around me in the weeks before Christmas, to rise and set with the sun. The sunlit days are technically getting longer now, but it won't be evident for weeks yet.
