maiden voyage

© Colleen Hilman
As a girl I remember being spellbound by our Christmas tree.

© Colleen Hilman
A black hole of pine needles and colour pulling me in until lights blurred and sugar plums danced.

© Colleen Hilman
Dreaming distant things, thoughts without words.

© Colleen Hilman
Looking in and into the tree until small lines strutted out of each twinkle like those old pictures of nativity starlight.

© Colleen Hilman
I could do this for hours.

Still.

There is really something magical about Christmas trees.

You cast a spell with those words of yours, I am right there next to the tree. I love your photos too, with the light gradually coming into focus. Magical.

I take 40,000 photos of the Christmas tree int he evening because the shutter stays open longer and gets that nativity star look to the lights. And it never gets old :)
