It’s the day before Christmas and I have a choice, holiday music or quiet.
Having neither stereo nor i-pod, not trusting my voice, I sigh.
Chanukah week is concurrent this year; the computer provides Jewish musical cheer.
From u-tube to radio stations far away, the strains of songs from long ago play,
But lo and behold --this, too, is not what I want to hear.
I’m really enjoying the silence today and actually realizing why.
No reason to fill up on manufactured cheer
No cobwebs, no ruminating. My head is clear
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year
