>I'm wondering if anyone noticed a blue Christmas, just not a lot of joyousness, celebration not in the air. It is hard to feel good and maybe it's right we feel a little blue. On the other hand, here we are.
It didn't seem celebratory--not the usual bright red--but not just blue either, more violet with a certain containment, the effort being inward, or an inexorable pull in that direction, toward presence. A (w)holi(y)day in the sense of 'well-being.'
