I was thinking tonight how interesting it would be to live through our own versions of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”. We’d have to make it a lot less scary, granted. But what would you experience….
When the Ghost of Christmas Past takes you to see and hear what really went on in your childhood home, but with you being able to see it with your adult eyes? Would you gain a better understanding of the influences that formed your early life? Would you cheer or be sad? Would you feel forgiveness or anger at injustice? What would that teach you?
When the Ghost of Christmas Present lets you see and hear what those around you think of you? How do they judge you? Do they love you or mock you behind your back? Do they make excuses for your shortcomings or blame you for their failings? How do you feel seeing your life through someone else’s eyes?
When the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come shows you where your life is heading if you stay on the same path, and lets you imagine a different road? How would you change the future if you could see it enough to adjust your presnt?
(Cee liked the idea of this post but objected to “A Christmas Carol” being so scary. She’d change it to be “It’s a Wonderful Life”. So you can write your own version of it.)
Just wondering… will you have a “Bah, humbug” adventure or will you hear Clarence the angel: “Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?”
And to all a good night!
Love and hugs,
