Holiday Lights


Festive Tasks Master Update Post HERE

Festive Tasks, Door 3 — Light(s), Task 2: Share some photos of your favorite light display, if you have them, or if you have a neighbor who goes ‘all out’, snap a photo to share.

But I love coming home at night in the holiday period with all those lights on, and I love taking a walk throught the neighborhood on Christmas Eve, when all is quiet and just those lights are shining. And I love the holiday decorations in the windows of the two little stores at the corner of our street, put together with so much heart and care every year anew. Here are a few impressions from this year’s holiday lights and decorations, collected earlier tonight:

Cherry Blossoms

One thing that made me grin when surfing social media during my recent hospital stay was this post: — both because of the “World’s Top Destinations” listing and for pitying the hordes of visitors flocking here these days to see the city’s famed cherry blossoms … because very recently it had looked more like they […]
