The shortest day of the year was on Dec 21, 2011, so now we’re on our way to the light again. Maybe that’s the reason why i feel a need to honour this new day by burning sage, hot cider, fire and listening to peaceful music. Later in the afternoon a solstice get together with a friend for chants, food and winter cheer. A wonderful day!!
Some things i noticed about outside yesterday ( Dec 22. ) was extreme stillness and peace. That will soon change.
A couple of pics taken using my iPhone camera app tiltShift.
A few winter berries, ornamental grass shaped by the elements, decaying Hostas and standing tall naked trees.
