December 1--Taking My Light South

There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or to be the mirror that reflects it.  --Edith Wharton
Heaven on Earth is a choice you must make, not a place you must find.
--Wayne Dyer

    December's theme in "Daily Joy" is faith
    I LOVE Christmas lights. Seeing lighting technology advance over the past few years has been an incredible delight. Our local botanical gardens, Botanica, has a huge light display every year at this time. It is heaven on earth to me. 
    It is well documented here in the blog that I dislike house-cleaning. Well, I buckled down this past weekend and cleaned the whole house and did the indoor Christmas decorating. Barney and I were "baching" it. Both days, after lots of cleaning and two neighborhood walks, we relaxed and enjoyed the light show. I had my favorite "husband-is-away" meal--mac 'n' cheese. 
    In two days, I will be in Jamaica. I can hardly wait to see the Christmas decorations at the resort. I'm excited to visit yet another new country. I set my intention to be a pleasant traveler in every respect--to bring peace with me through the airport and flights, to be kind and generous toward all the folks who contribute to my great beach vacation.
