The Photo which the Blogger Had Rejected
....turned out to be not half bad.
I had been meaning all Advent to take a picture of the singular Chi-Rho symbol early in advent and post it, saying that despite all the flashy 80 foot Santas and elves on the majority of lawns, there were still a few pockets of sanity. Right on a hillside fairly near to where I live, a resident has put up this simple display each year for as long as I can remember. This year when I'd remember to bring my camera it rained like heck or there were high winds and the lights weren't on. The only photo I got was one I thought I mussed up. So I never did that blog. Now the more I look at it, I realize it was one of those serendipity moments, that I couldn't have actually planned it that well. The ACLU must really hate it that it overlooks a major freeway and a few hundred thousand cars pass it every day -- and they can't do ZIP about it, as it sits on private property.
