Candles welcome the dawn today. Music rings in my mind. Spices mix with scent of sea breeze. Cinnamon rolls for breakfast, warm from the oven. Lucia is welcomed in with the light. Winter sun plays across the bay, highlighting headlands and crofts. The tide rolls in with a playful splash, before receding into the day. Out for a stroll, cold air nipping at my fingers and toes. A pause to watch the world pass by. A playful dog brings me a stick to throw, splashing through the iced water. Laughter joined, its owner summons it back. Then home to toast myself by the fire, mulled wine in hand. Flames flickering, echoing the morning’s light. Happy Lucia!
