waiting, watching

Waiting, watching, anticipating . . . what better symbol for Advent than the earthy little paperwhite bulb? Fill a paper bag at the nursery and then harvest joy in your kitchen windowsill. Nestle them in pebbles, add water and just let what's inside thrive. Bright green stems will shoot toward the light and burst into the freshest-smelling snowy white blossoms. A tiny tabletop miracle.
