"From mid to end of December is the darkest time of the year.
Like our gardens our own animal natures begin drawing us inward,
we take refuge in layers of warm clothing,
hot tea and darkened rooms
brightened by candles and working fireplaces.
We may even feel wistful and contemplative
as outer "sight" slips mysteriously into inner "insight"
and we take stock of what is passing
and what is possibly coming towards us,
just not yet here or fully visible.
This is winter solstice! "
