|Open Gate - 5 by 7 watercolor, digitally enhanced|
An open gate, between the past and the future, as was and is Christmas.
The steps in the past are fading. Those in the future are indistinct.
We let those fading steps slow us down.
The unknown future brings worry and hesitation.
We should just put our hand on the gate of the present, and walk through, in present tense.
Shouldn't Christmas be about present tense?
