Savoring the moments of the season

By Kim, published on Dec 6, 2007

A contemplative chat by the fireside of a cozy cafe at happy hour. A tree lighting in the neighborhood park. Taking a moment to view the manger scene in a store window as you rush back from lunch break. Whether or not you celebrate the "holidays" in a traditional fashion, love the song and shopping, boycott it all, or just ignore it, there are magical minutes that await each of us this time of year. As we forge ahead through a season that comes in with a furry and leaves all too quickly, I think it vital as well as comforting to take time to savor the moments of the season.
