Location? Downtown San Francisco
Synchronicity (aka Miracle) of the Day? Who knew that San Francisco had an annual Santa Convention? Not we!
(In the spirit of the season, do forgive my doggerel!)
My friend Linda and I were on our way to a park, when what to our wondering eyes should appear but four swigging Santas, looking ever so dear. We stopped and shot snaps:
And turned ourselves round, so as not to miss the best event to be found at Union Square in San Francisco’s downtown.
But not far away, frivolity faded; police lined the streets, looking a bit jaded. Protesters gathered; sober speakers spoke; signs carried messages of outrage, not hope.
And so, the day ended with a discussion: how do we contribute to making things better for all of us? Dear Santa, do you know?
