Winter Solstice

solstice2_300

To celebrate the winter solstice I gathered with my family in the garden waiting for the sun to rise with candles and flowers. We each talked about the things we are grateful for, were we are, and what we want and don’t want to bring forward with us. We talked about renewal, about solidarity, and being together.

Below is a winter solstice poem by Susan Cooper.

Happy Winter Solstice!
