I spent five years doing Christmas lights on a huge scale at the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple. We put up thousands of lights every year. As a result, I came to appreciate simple instead of complex. Don't get me wrong, I love the lights, but now I appreciate simple things a lot more. This time of year, the mesquite trees provide their own version of decorations. Many times the beans fall off the tree, but in this case they dried in place providing a beautiful display.
