in which I see the light

The lights are up on the boat--the Keelhauler and I just spent twenty minutes testing them and replacing bad bulbs. We got LED lights, which are more efficient but god-awfully bright. I kept holding up the box of lights shaped like snowflakes, alternating blue and white, which makes for maximum non-denominationality but minimum practicality. Still, it's an improvement over last year, when I, unsupervised, strung up yards of big glass bulbs, only to have them shatter all over the deck.

Winter is here.
