Yesterday’s Drabble made me think about the way that our society handles things.
As funny as it is, it struck me at a deeper level. Every year when we put our lights away, it is tempting to toss them in a box and deal with them next year. We fight off this urge and wrap them up carefully so that they are easy to get out the next time we want them. Not to read too much into it, but isn’t this the temptation we fight all of the time? That deep urge to put off until later something we could/should easily take care of now. A few minutes now make things so much easier later. Our problems, like our Christmas lights, seem to get more and more tangled when ignored.
Speaking of which, I think I have a pile of grading around here somewhere that I should get to before even more piles up.
