Good Tidings

The holidays are painful. I've always preferred the generosity of presence to its pseudonym; but as we age, every day becomes haunted by a missing one; the joy of "auld lang syne" is replaced by the grief of "without mine".

I won't offer any condolences because I feel we have to find them within ourselves or through our beliefs, even our loved ones are no comfort if our mind is set.

For me, joy is always present in loving others (despite the nonsense accompanying existing), and its more substantial than happiness.
