Gifts of the mundane

OK, I'll spill. I'm not a fan of Christmas. Yes, it's true and here's why: years ago the true meaning of Christmas became obscured by the gunk of desire, expectations, and unsustainable consumption. During this season we are distracted by the stress of it all and fail to notice the small mundane gifts that we are given each day: squirrel tracks in the snow, the architecture of bare trees, the tear drop shape of an apple seed.
