winter solstice

Back to the light!
Happy Solstice to you all!

I found this on the web, because i cannot explain it all, but tomorrow we will have 7 seconds more light. I did not know there is such a slowing down, for the gears to shift. I have to say it feels like that. The darkest hour might be over, but it's a long haul. That's why there is Christmas! to sit around the tree and candle light, eat good food ,exchange gifts, music, etc and feel grateful and blessed with loved ones. Thanks.

Happy Winter Solstice. Sounds like it is a bit nippy there. You sound cheery and happy and like you are doing good. Christmas is almost here, and I do wish you a most happy holiday full of love and harmony.
