How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment?

Time flies whether you're having fun or not! Here we are, right on the cusp of at long past the winter solstice, and the month has been the strangest combination of tense, stressful, terrible news a-swirl; and cautious, joyful reunions, festive sights and smells, wintery walks, dogs in boots, quiet and noisy, music and the crunch of snow.

Earlier in the month, I wrote you a pandemic haiku:

Back in the habit
Of holding my breath as I
Walk past the unmasked

But now we've hung stockings, opened gifts, eaten several feasts and dozens of cookies, and drunk eggnog and hot chocolate and pots and pots of coffee. So it's probably time for a holiday haiku:

It takes two tables
To hold my whole family
To hold my whole heart

Together, Christmas 2021
