I spent a quiet Christmas day by myself. Then in the evening I drove out to Santa Monica and took a leisurely walk along the stroll path edging the bluff. It was an unusually warm evening and some people were actually out in their summer clothes. At times there was a fairly strong wind, but even the wind was warm. There was one bright star visible as the Sun sank behind the ocean's edge. Presumably it was Venus, the 'Evening Star'.
