december 25th went on like this:the sunset
i'm a sucker for sunsets.i think it's the most emotionally moving part of the day.and i can't get enough of it.at the same time i'm afraid to see too much of it that i might lose my fervor for it like when a song loses it meaning because you play it over and over.
anyway,at five in the afternoon on the twenty-fifth.i dragged my lovely little family to the viewing deck at the mall,not minding how crowded and hot it was.we waited for almost thirty minutes before the ball of fire turned to its orange glory and majestically descended to the other side of the world.
basking in the last rays of the day,we laughed and posed for photos.at that moment,as i looked at the two of them,the whole world seemed insignificant.
he didn't matter.what i did didn't matter.nothing did except that i had the two most important people in my life with me.
