Each day, yo.
. . .
I’ve never had an advent calendar.
But I very much like the idea of making my own, even if it’s in my head.
The 30 or 31 days before me would be neatly arranged in a grid.
Or perhaps it’d be a ceramic shelf of sorts, with little glazey drawers to pull open, one by one, and timidly peer inside.
Tiny trinkets and treats would await.
Chocolates in golden wrappers.
Knickknacks of bluebirds and mermaids and sailboats.
For in this unpredictable world, to take a slice of time for enjoyment?
It may be the best plan we have.
