What would you remember about Christmas if no pictures were taken? What feeling would you carry with you if nothing of Christmas Eve had been perpetuated on social media?
Play with the idea that the memories you bring with you from this year's Christmas just sit in you, in your heart. There is no evidence that the children had matching Christmas clothes, the Christmas tree was perfect and the patches many. What remains is what you - you - remember.
Oh what I hope that the memories glitter caught up with the photos that were not taken. That the photos had not been a substitute for what is glittering, what feels.
Because there are those who will have those photos - tillochmed are admired for them. But don't remember the moment. See that "oh what we smiled" but don't remember the laughter.
But take the photos! Let them enrich what already feels! But don't look at others and think it's all. Because it is never. There is always so much more - more joy, more love, more tears, more loneliness. More life. In the middle of all photos. And we know nothing.
