Winter Solstice

"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! "
---Eileen Lawlor (behavorial therapist)

Here is a beautiful Native American flute song titled
Winter Solstice
by Rona Yellow Robe


Savor the Day!
