Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love! ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie
There was a hypnotic freezing coursing through the air. At the top of the stairs, faint music and mumbled voices brought many a stranger a Christmas wish for what most civil beings long; love!
I gathered with others to watch the ice skaters. I felt a bit intrusive taking the video but eager to capture the pleasure of a heart warming moment, so I continued, in hopes a Chicago Christmas spirit burns throughout 2017.
Christmas morning lasts as long as any other morning; time never lasts long enough. The climax of this holiday spirit, from Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve has settled in. The faces gathered around the cheer have faded. The warmth turnedfrigid. The precious moments never last long enough. I must say it is tears of sadness I shed and with a bitter thought I soil my mind.
