I remember one night when I was six, I must have been sick, I was sick a lot back then, coming out to the living room. It was late to me, but was probably only midnight or so. My mother was still up doing Christmas cards, it was probably the last year we sent the massive amount of cards to friends and family. Johnny Carson was on TV. The lights were off, expect for one small dimly lit table lamp and the light from the television. The whole scene still sticks with me some 35 years later.
