This year is not winding up as I expected. Instead of ranting and complaining, let's hear it for the little things. I noticed and appreciated these, in particular, today:

  • A tiny chihuahua in a red sweater named Lola who greets customers in her owner's shop
  • The baritone-voiced gent singing Christmas songs outside the neighborhood pizza place
  • Rootbeer and bratwurst
  • People holding doors open for each other
  • Two little boys squished into a jog stroller, sound asleep
  • Bird chirping outside my urban window
