It's easy to get swept up in the bustle of this season.
The caffeine and sugar!
Pick one moment.
It can be any moment you choose.
But be still in that moment. That breath.
Let yourself watch everything that is happening around you as if it's an old home movie being played before your eyes.
And take an invisible picture of it.
Then re-enter the Griswaldian existence that surrounds you.
Because that little moment you witness is passing into the "shadows of the things that have been".
And our present moment is a breath away from becoming a ghost of the past.
No matter what you celebrate this season, experience it with every sense you have.
Actually do it now.
Look up. And take in everything that surrounds you.
It all goes by so quickly.
