Advent means waiting for something important. In the Northern hemisphere we are preparing for a time of company in almost absent daylight, and the outward symbols of gifts and food becomes overwhelming. I have seen the lonely souls looking more forlorn than ever. For every candlelight they seem paler, and for every slice of ham they seem to grow thinner. These are the lonely people, those that long for holidays to end. The hardest and simplest thing to share is company, we seem to use the holidays as an excuse to lock our doors, and let the candlelight of company delights cast black shadows on the streets outside, to let the sounds of our carols reverberate, and to let the lonely souls feel even lonelier.
