“And for those of you who may be feeling sadness and disconnection with all holiday merriment imagery. Be kind to yourself. You are loved and lovable!” – Gregg Masters
Despite not having spent Christmas with my immediate family in nearly 8 years, today was another wonderful holiday. I am very thankful for strangers turned friends who continue to open their homes to me and allow me to feel the warmth and love of family on days such as this. May joy, love, kindness and generosity abound always!
Today I ventured beyond Baltimore, and into Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvannia -a neighborhood near Harrisburg. This neighborhood has a long standing Christmas eve tradition of lining the streets with lit candles in bags of sand. It’s usually a breath-taking sight, similar to the airport runway lights at night. Tonight was a flop because the candles could barely stay lit because of the intense wind this evening. Nonetheless, I managed to capture some moments on camera, including this amazingly huge tree which has existed longer than the houses you see. Merry Christmas all!
