Noël; Noëlle.

I always go out to coffee with at the same place with one of my close friends when we’re home. She is the friend who taught me the best things: she makes sure we meet up every time we’re both home, drives me both ways if need be, and always, always cares.

I know she does this deliberately, as a decision. Noëlle cares so much about people; is so deliberate about staying with them even if she can’t talk to them for weeks at a time; is so deliberate about who she’ll invest in, especially and wholly. And she knows how nice it is when sometimes, for no reason, someone buys your coffee and a croissant to share.

And then, the other night, as I began the late-night stage of a frantic paper, a friend agreed to come study with me, and, out of nowhere, asked what he could bring me from Starbucks on his way over.

These people are the best. I want to be like them.

Gutsily, lustily, and with bravado.

So we sang at Sufjan tonight, welcoming the commercial Christmas season. This year, I’m surprised to find, I don’t mind Christmas starting early. I’ve already bought one Christmas gift and card, and I’ve liked seeing the red Starbucks cups and have delighted in the lights going up. Less Grinchy this year, I suppose.
