powerful revelations

-The orange lacey pattern of lichen and bark on a tree outside. I think it may be a lacebark elm, but my aunt probably knows better than I do. The grey bark peeling away to reveal orange and tan is so pretty.

-My "The Power of One" DVD finally coming in the mail. I ordered it some time back after reading the novel, and am eager to watch it. I remember loving it when I was younger.

-Listening to Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song" on my record player. It's a Christmas staple for my family, and so it ushers in the season perfectly. I've never heard it on vinyl before this year, and it sounds so rich and clear, I can almost smell the chestnuts roasting.
