I heard a rumor that Christmas is in three days! I'm not sure if I heard it on the Internet, television, or You Porn, but I know I heard it somewhere, and I think it's probably true because there's a fake Christmas tree leaning lopsided in the middle of my living room right now.
We're finally in our new place and I plan on posting a few pics of the joint after the holiday. Life has been crazy for us over the past two weeks... However, I finally got a chance to catch my breath last night when I went to sleep at 8 and woke up at 8 this morning. Been a long time since I've slept like that and it will be long time until I sleep like that again. It was a glorious night though.
There are lots of things I love about the holidays, like getting presents, getting presents, and getting presents. That's what this whole ting is about right? I could spend the rest of this post speculating about all the fine gifts that Allyson is going to give me, but I have to keep this post relatively short. Right?
Besides spending time with loved ones and making merry, my favorite thing about Christmas is going outside sometime after midnight and listening to the silence of Christmas night. That's what it's all about for me. It makes me feel hopeful, and I do it every year no matter what condition I'm in or where I'm living. Sober, drunk, high, sick, in a red carpeted family room, on a roof in NJ, in a martial arts studio in DC, or in my new old Kentucky home, it really doesn't matter. I imagine a peaceful world, and I feel a hope that this world so desperately needs.
Merry Christmas my friends. God Bless Us Everyone including all of you Jews, Muslims, atheists, agnostic crackheads, and especially all of the lovers and the dreamers.
