|"Starlight Season," 5 x 7 watercolor holiday greeting card
--Martin Luther King Jr.
It's been a dark year, but there have been stars to help lighten the world. We don't know most of their names, but they're still there when we need them the most...health workers, poll workers, protesters against racism and hatred, comforters of those who are mourning, spiritual leaders, loved ones. The list doesn't end.
We're approaching a season when the light of one star will fill hearts and images. And you can look up at night, travel back in time to the ages when the light of those stars first headed this way, across the galaxies.
Especially on cold, clear winter nights, as in a dark year, when fresh snow reflects their crisp light, you can look up in awe, thankful for the beauty and peace they shed into your spirit in the darkness.
