Another Christmas Eve and still no one claims me. Alone? Not exactly. I do have my pet spider and gecko Milo and Sheila, but no human other than myself. No relations to partake of the festivities with me. Friends have invited me to their celebrations but this year, it’s not right. I feel the need to keep vigil on a solitude I cannot fathom. So, eggnog and crickets, mango and cookies as I welcome in the season wondering if I will find answers soon.
Tomorrow I will be Jewish … and go to the movies.
