I had an impromptu journey through Holiday Lane tonight. For those not in the know, that’s the name of the holiday section at Macy’s. I had an appointment that ended earlier than expected and next thing I knew I was heading up to the ninth floor.

What a feast for the eyes, an orgy of ornaments. The selection in the Christopher Radko section was like nothing I’ve ever seen. The man is the genius of sparkle and color. There were so many themed trees — astrology, Victorian, toys, polar bears, nautical, color schemes. Every time I turned a corner there was another tree decked out in some outrageous way.

I resisted purchasing, just took it all in. I walked out humming Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

A delightful respite.
