“You better watch out…”
“1,2,3! Eyes on me!”
“If you see something, say something.”
The eyes of Dr. T.J Eckleburg.
“All along the watchtower/Princes kept their view.”
Is it just me or is there something ominous about the word “watch” especially in the context of meditating on Advent. There’s an undertone of the surveillance state to this season. Someone’s watching – God, Santa, the cookies on your Amazon.com account.
Perhaps it’s a time to be the watcher, to focus your attention on what’s most important.
Keep your eyes on the prize.
