Ahhh ….

Together, with humankind across the world,

            we are once again walking
                through an old familiar passageway
on cobblestones polished with the footsteps of time.

Together, we will pass under the arch of Christmas,

            from the old year towards the new,
                and from the dark of winter
                towards the light.

Take your time.
            Stop when you like.
                               Enjoy every step of the way.
Narrow cobblestone lane near Piazza del Popolo in Orvieto, and old hilltown in Umbira, Italy.
