Last Christmas I tried to download an episode of Northern Exposure, one with a holiday theme that I always loved. I wasn’t successful, but I kept the request up there just in case it ever became available. A week or so ago it started downloading, and this morning I watched it. What a sweet show this was. My favorite parts are when Holling sings Ave Maria to Shelly. And when Joel brings a Christmas tree to Maggie.
Sigh. It made me want to move to Alaska when I first saw it. Anyway, it was a nice way to begin the day, to keep hope alive, even though I know life has some fresh horrors in store for me. I can’t lie, as time goes on I lose faith and it gets harder and harder to hope, but maybe something this sweet is still a possibility.
(Please, please, please.)
I still take comfort
in the fact
that there are people in the world
(and there always will be)
things like this
Northern Exposure episode.
