Christmas Day...a few photos and a few words.

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!”
― Dr. Seuss

So a couple things. Firstly, yes I know that these pics are a week late. I've been busy. Between two jobs I'm on a two week stretch without a day off. What a way to start the new year, right? But on the other hand, working this hard during the holidays is a good test for me...a sort of personal challenge to keep my spirits up (or maybe it's just a diversion). Anyhow, all of these were taken on Christmas. The photo above (sorry, that one was actually shot on Christmas Eve Day) was taken as I unlocked my bike at a coffee shop. The car was parked right up to my bike and as I looked up the cross shone in the sunlight...perfect and appropriate, I thought. So I took it's photo. The next four photos below were taken on the way to my sister's house for a family gathering on Christmas. I was actually in a car (yes, it's share) and I took a detour to Buffalo's outer harbor for a bit of peace along the way. I love it there any time of year. And the last photo below--the moon, of course--is the first Christmas full moon since 1977. It took it's photo, with a glass of wine in hand, from my front yard when I arrived home in the evening.
