Today is Christmas and tonight is the last night of Hanukkah. I like to think that the holidays coming in this convergence represents the hope for greater amity for the coming year, but I know there is no magic in the calendar. Instead, we are the source of kindness and goodness. My prayer for you today is that you give and experience love and compassion and that we all have a good year in 2023.
Here in Albuquerque people traditionally put out luminaria (also called farolitas), which are paper bags with a bit of sand and a candle placed inside. Every year people tour my neighborhood to see the spectacular luminaria. I thought I’d share a few photos with you as a treat for the holiday.
Be well, friends! Hug your loved ones. May you find joy.
