The best resolution

“Why yes, yes I know it’s the second half of January,” I posted with a photo of our Christmas tree surrounded by its reflection in the mirror and patio door. “What ever is your point?”

One of our most cherished stories is about a man who, confronted with his failings and looming mortality, resolves to keep the spirit of Christmas in his heart year-round. I’m not sure I can think of a better resolution.

A brightly decorated tree lighting the night seems just the thing to push the dreariness away in winter.
