Merry Christmas…

Christmas was the time my Dad was out of work for the first time.  I spent hours wondering why Santa had been less generous that year, listening to Ben by Michael Jackson…

Christmas was the time my first crush told me, in the nicest possible way, it was never going to be.  I spent hours looking out of my bedroom window at the snow, listening to Yester me, Yester You, Yesterday by Stevie Wonder…

Christmas was the time my first love ended our thing.  I spent hours outside of her house, standing in the snow, listening to Dreams by Fleetwood Mac…

Christmas was the time we tried a family reunion after my parents had split up.  It didn’t work.  I spent hours listening to I Want to Know What Love Is by Foreigner…

Christmas was the time I walked out on my partner, my job, my house.  My life.  I spent hours listening to Postcards from Heaven by The Lighthouse Family…

Christmas was the time that I gifted that album to my now wife.  We spent hours listening to it together…

Christmas was the time our daughter was born.  Niether of us listened to anything much at that time.  Except the sound of our daughter breathing…

Christmas was the time I lost my job.  I spent hours listening to  my own self doubt.  But then I stopped.  And started listening to my friends and family instead…

I Love Christmas… 🙂
