Before the clock hits 9 o’clock, I hit the bed and close my eyes.

I hug my stuffed pink lamb close to my chest. I know I’m too old for this. But hey, I’m just being me.

In my ears, Silent Night is sung by Bon Jovi. It’s the one they performed live in Cincinnati, 1987. I had this cassette tape when I was a high school kid. I listened to this track so much that it got damaged before I was even out of high school. I had to throw it away. It was a tough goodbye. But thank God for this Youtube era.

Life has improved.

In so many ways.

I feel especially blessed to be able to listen to this song as I try to fall asleep, though it reminds me of many unfortunate events.

Many lovers are realizing their love has died tonight…
