Astonishing how many “A” words are affiliated with this Advent season of anticipation before the arrival of the Christ child into the world. It’s all about cultivating a sense of awareness and attentiveness“Do not be afraid,” the angel told Mary, the annunciation or ‘announcement’ scene appearing in amazing art throughout history. “All of life is a kind of Advent,” a dear friend said, an astounding thought that makes me grateful to be alive and awakeAlleluia, amen.

(The Annunciation by Sandro Botticelli, circa 1490, Uffizi Gallery, Florence.)
