Double booked

it feels too early in the 'season' to have two things to do
at the same time -
but I did.

a raucous, loud,
feeding and buying frenzy,
all for a good cause to be sure;
a morning which promised to be filled
with brief, superficial conversations,
laughter and being 'on'.

The other:

an Advent quiet morning
at a local retreat center;
the chance to breathe deeply,
listen carefully,
and see glimmers of light in the darkness;
to reflect on 'preparing the way'
being road builders.

It was no contest.

I'm pleased with the choice I made.

I have plenty of other opportunities
for eating, buying
and laughing!
