Small town lines the street

High-school band pipes out carols

A Christmas parade.

Art Prescription: We drove to a small town near us, Hillsborough, NC, for their Christmas parade. The poet in me is moved to tears by such events. It symbolizes old-fashion fun and values, and time spent with family and friends. I’m sure there was lots of facebooking, and instagramming, and tweets, and chats, but for some time suspended in the magic of the season, people were all together waving and cheering for small town heroes.
