Winter Solstice 2017

Thursday December 21 is the beginning of Winter heralded by the Solstice.

A time of rest and quiet, of reflection on the year past and anticipation of the year coming.

“The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory.”  ~Gary Zukav

“I believe in process.  I believe in four seasons.  I believe that winter is tough, but spring is coming.  I believe that there is a growing season.  And I think you realize that in life, you grow.  You get better.” ~Steve Southerland

“When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm.  Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.” ~Madeleine H. Kunin

I invite you to take a moment this coming solstice to listen to the quiet, to feel the energy of winters soft glow.

Blessings!
