Christmas Back Where I Had Never Been.

From earliest memory, many of us have carried a picture of Christmas Past, each brushstroke detailed and framed by a lifetime of reading, listening, and longing. Today, with bags full of expectations, I am coming close to realizing that dream.

Many years ago the late John McNulty wrote a travel sketch for "The New Yorker" with the beguiling title, "Back Where I had Never Been." This Christmas, in London, I will travel back where I have never been.
