I don't know what has happened, but this has been a very calm, quiet, peaceful Christmas for me. Although I have been somewhat emotionally fragile lately, I have had several evenings in the last week or so that have found me where I am tonight: in the living room, with the lit Christmas tree, with a candle burning, peacefully reading or writing. I found the time to send Christmas cards, something I haven't really done in several years. I have even made the time to BAKE this year.
I don't know what it is, but it feels good.
