In Iceland, the tradition is to give books on Christmas Eve, and read.  Each of us is a book, so yes, give books, but also open up the pages within, and share what’s there.

I’m watching the sky come to light as my family gathers today and for the next many days. I’m with these words of Antonio Machado:

The deepest words

of the wise …. teach us

the same as the whistle of the wind when it blows

or the sound of the water when it is flowing.


Be a feather in flight and flow
