I was coming home the other night from an errand. Steely Dan Pretzel Logic was playing, and I passed a house near us that has a large, lit star up in a tree. It must be five or six feet in diameter, and they’ve put it up at Christmas for as long as I can remember—at least 15 years. I suspect they’ve replaced it at least once during that period.
Anyway, having of course just been through stores full of holiday cheer, and hearing one of Katie’s favorite songs, and seeing that familiar star—for a few seconds I thought I was heading home to my family.
Here’s hoping it guided a few folks home for the holidays.
