Way out in the country, in the little Danish farm community of Danevang, Texas, we celebrate Christmas together at the community center.
There are lots of people there dancing around the Christmas tree and singing. If we stomp our feet, Santa will come!
On that night, I always go outside for a moment to be alone by this window.
I come from a place with 70 people and now live in a city of 2.6 million.
It's nice to go back to the country.
.... there are stars floating by on this quiet night.

For more, see Dragonstar, our host throughout the year,

Merry Christmas!


  1. A beautiful image...blessings to you and your beloveds during this holiday season.

  2. This is a lovely peaceful shot.
    How fortunate for you to be able to go home for some quiet reflection.

  3. I enjoyed the story about your photo. I think it's important to have an occasional peaceful refuge from the bustle of city life.

  4. I love walking away from groups...all by myself. I can certainly relate to your doing this. Love the idea that everyone get to ether at the community center and that there is ganging and stomping of the feet to call Santa. Know the kids get a kick out of that. Lovely shot in black and white. genie

  5. Great shot of the window..I also enjoy a moment of quiet and peace when I'm together with many people...Nice to step back and just look...I wish you a merry christmas and some nice hollidays..;-D

  6. Beautifully quiet.
    Merry Christmas, David!
