I’m in the car, at a light, in a long line of traffic, reviewing my mental Christmas list (some might say, checking it twice…;) when the afternoon sun pops out, just for a moment, bringing this old, red wall to life.

The tree shows up as a shadow (and, again, in the window, but I don’t notice that ’til later), and the warm orange and red tones of the wall are revealed.

All of a sudden, this cold, bustling afternoon brightens up with the colour of the season.

Okay, it’s not the berry-red of Christmas tradition, but it’s a gorgeous ginger-red -reminding me of another tradition of the season…

The Ginger-red House!  (Okay, forgive me!  I couldn’t resist!)    Happy Holidays!
