Blessed Solstice

Welcome winter! Happy Solstice, appreciation for the dark and cold and forward looking to more light every day after today. I’ve got my altar mostly set, the things I want to leave behind written down, and dinner going. 

How amazing is the book tree Carol made me? Early Christmas gift and I am thrilled.  It is perfect!!

A few sayings I like about this season that align with my feelings on it: 

“The Winter Solstice is the time of ending and beginning, a powerful time — a time to contemplate your immortality. A time to forgive, to be forgiven, and to make a fresh start. A time to awaken.” 
-Frederick Lenz

“There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you…. In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.”
-Ruth Stout

Long winter beach walks coming. Wishing you a quiet, healthy season of restoration and reflection that fills what needs filling and clears what we needs clearing within you.
