How To Find Holiday Spirit

It has been three days and I haven’t posted anything, though not for lack of trying. I think my problem has been that I’ve been getting too sentimental, too personal. It got to the point where I couldn’t take myself seriously in the rereading of any of it. And so, I’ve decided to take a step back from the personal posts and write a list: How To Find Holiday Spirit.


I should be used to this by now. In a way, I suppose I am. I know what and how much to pack. I know what tickets I need, the times to book for. I know where to go and who to talk to. I know how to do everything in such a way that I will cause myself the lowest amount of discomfort. But as it always is when I travel between Calgary and Winchester, I have this feeling of leaving one home to go to another. I don’t want to leave, but I also don’t want to stay.
