Winter

Saturday’s Solstice heralds the return of the light.  Most of the country suffers in the grip of freezing cold.  I find it hard to imagine the warmth that is coming, but I rejoice in knowing that I will thaw out eventually.

I am so done with this deep, bone-chilling, record-setting cold.  I have curbed my grumbling and complaining after the spate of hypothermia deaths suffered by the homeless in the Bay Area.  I struggle to stay warm, but my struggle pales markedly in comparison to so many others.

Solstice offers time for introspection.  In keeping with a recent blog, I am ever so grateful for a sound roof over my head, hot water, heat, indoor plumbing, a stove to cook on and food to eat.  Things easily taken for granted, especially in seasons of warmth.

I invite you to celebrate Solstice with giving and gratitude.
