A Christmas Vision

By Joe Christensen

So for a while i’ve been pondering this vision i’ve been having. Picture this. It is Christmas but instead of being inside around a dead tree you are outside (in a forest? a SuperForest?) and you sit around the tree (maybe in it?) exchanging handmade gifts and sharing each other’s company. You have decorated the tree with flowers perhaps? I feel like someone is tapping the sleigh bells. There is no wasted wrapping or mess, just love and nature.

Can you see it?
