An evening spent in good lightning and better company at the house of our friends Lia and Felicia. Who host every year but somehow always on weekends I'm not able to make it. So it was quite an event for a first timer. Sans kids, with plenty of wine. And cheese. And creative vegan delights reminding me just how much these evenings count during points of unraveling social discontent and political divide currently clogging our psyche. To be among united hearts and easy joy in an intimate setting will shake you into feeling all the good stuff. Grateful and light again. Exactly what the holidays are all about. Because they are here. So let us hang on, get happy and enjoy every moment of them together.
