Stars and Angels
I might be a wee bit envious, because I didn't get back home from church until after 1am.
For a working musician who is also a parent of a heavily scheduled teenaged musician who are both card-carrying members of an entire family of working musicians, Christmas is what I'm waiting for too, but not necessarily for the same reasons. Christmas is a giant symbolic finish line to a race that started around the beginning of November. And don't get me wrong here -- I'm not complaining about Christmas the holiday whatsoever. But now that I've made it to THE DAY, I'm ready now to celebrate with the rest of the world and then move on. It's nice to spend a lot of time with the things we already have. But if we never remember to look up, we will have missed so much. There are new signs and songs and stories everywhere.
