I am a pilgrim and a stranger
Traveling through this wearisome land
I've got a home in that yonder city, good Lord
And it's not, not made by hand

Note: Yesterday we journeyed through three distinct landscapes the way you do at Christmas, from suburb to city to country. We welcomed and found welcome at each stage. The city situ was very grand, splendid and beautiful, despite the slight, but noticeable, rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic party vibe.

Up all night.  I should think of it as a gift.
