Today's the Winter Solstice! From here on in, the days will get longer until midsummer. Hurray! We're over the hump of winter light deprivation!
And may anyone who celebrates this as a holy day have a blessed celebration.
On a sad note, my friend Joel killed himself on the winter solstice twenty years ago. The memorial service included a poem he'd written about yearning for spring.
I'm thinking about him and his family today.
