1.2.3…Solstice, Light, & Winter

The longest night, the least light, the entire winter ahead. Do you perceive this time through the lens of a glass half empty, a glass half full, or simply a glass with liquid ? What if this time is meant for rest and reflection ?  Light a candle. Toast the darkness. Put your feet up.  Enjoy, sip and savor that glass with liquid. Drink in its tonic which is fortifying for the busy seasons of the new year. Happily, the glass half full reminds us that the gain in daylight increases from NOW……..Georgia Vincent

Seeing into darkness is clarity.

Knowing how to yield is strength.

Use your own light

and return to the source of light.

This is called practicing eternity.

       -Lao-Tzu
