The winter solstice is here! It's a wonderful thing, at least for those of us who love light. I adore where we live, but our particular property is quite deficient in winter photons. From here on out (until the Summer Solstice in June) the days are getting longer. We must endure the longest night of the year first, but after that, the time we spend in the dark will be waning.
This year is extra special with a total lunar eclipse thrown in, but we're clouded in with storms and likely won't see it. Happens too often here - we missed the last great meteor shower due to fog.
So, it's a turning point, and one worth celebrating at least in some small way. Ours will involve a fire, some snow, and likely some rum cake. What will you do to celebrate this day?
