Christmas Wish

 

This is what I wish for Christmas this year:

I hope it snows

I hope it snows a lot

I hope we get buried in the stuff

and then when the sunsets I hope the clouds break away and the stars burn up the night sky.

 

I hope it snows

I hope the world freezes over

I hope its so cold that my bones ache

and when I think Winter is never going to end and what did I make this stupid wish FOR

Christmas music  comes on the radio

and

I feel warm and happy in all of that cold.

That’s what I wish for Christmas.

This is a fun prompt from The Soul Food Cafe’s 2003 Advent Calender- you do some soul searching and list 45 things you are grateful for.

So that’s what I’m going to do here.  I’m not going to pop out 45 because I’d like to reflect on them a bit. So let’s start cooking:

 

  1. I am grateful for being able to write- I am grateful that some people enjoy my work and I am grateful for the ones who don’t. Having people respond to you art is what matters at the end of the day.
  2. I am grateful for Dictionary.com It’s cooler and more reliable then Wikipedia- which anyone can mess with and they even have an icon to click so you can hear the word. Did I mention they have quizzes and trivia? The Science Geek in me is geeking out over this site. It’s fabulous!
  3.  I am grateful for Absinthe– I am not a big drinker- I’m not even a sometimes drinker but when I do go out and have that occasional drink, having one with a cool history makes the experience a little more exciting. Was it exciting?  First of all, absinthe is green, people believed that drinking it would make you go insane and it tastes like licorice. What’s not to love?

Wow- that was fun!

I thought I would go the Sunday School, Touchy Feeley  ” I am grateful ” road- but I’m hoping as I list these things out they all make me smile

AND

I think I’m going to add the Absinthe site to my blog links.

First they whispered

from under my bed

‘ come and find us’

they hissed

with ice in their blood

and fear in their veins

” Go away ” I said

and they did.

” Come and find us “

They whispered

when I was lost in thought

driving my car, taking a walk

” Go away ” I said

and they did.

” We’re going away “

they said

” We will leave you alone, it’s what you want  isn’t it? “

” No ” I hissed with ice in my veins

” Don’t leave me alone. Stay with me forever”

I offered

as I slid into the dark

under my bed.

We don’t really ever stumble upon our path to the Underworld- we each blaze a trail down to the very core of that darkness that some of us crave or need or find ourselves  the slaves too.

It’s such a small step to take- all we have to do is look down, fall to our knees and lift, push  or dig to find that door.

Are we ever surprised when we consider how easy it is to find ourselves there?

Yesterday I was walking through Pioneer Square in Seattle and I saw a lot of manhole covers- on the street, on the side walks- each of them inviting me to look down, to look at them and to consider

what it I would find if I were to lift one and descend.

Would I find…
