Garden neighbors provided me recently with two lovely experiences.
The first was when I walked Christmas Tree Lane. I joined
a very large crowd strolling the lane on a mild evening
with a slight drizzle. It was an exceptionally memorable
experience because the rain-slicked pavement danced with
myriad reflections from colorful Christmas tree lights
lining Van Ness.
all of my family took that memorable stroll. My second
experience was shared with them the next evening, as we
joined a bumper-to-bumper bevy of vehicles gazing at the
wonderful Christmas decorations along the same route.
struck me then, that despite considerable personal expense
and traffic inconveniences, Fig Garden neighbors have continued,
year after year, to share their marvelous vision of Christmas.
to neighbor -- I thank Fig Garden for this delightful Christmas
