Light and life and love--7 days 'til Christmas

"Cabin dreams," 5 x 7 #watercolor
Days grow darker, and shorter and colder as the year nears its death.
What we need, at all times, but especially now, is light and life and love.
Cabins in the wilderness fill my thoughts and dreams... warmth and welcoming. 
Celebrations of light and life and love inside--sanctuaries from darkness in an insecure world, highlighted by starlight, hopes and memories.
