The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, …like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory. – Gary Zukav

 

FOCUS:  Winter Solstice

This morning when we awoke everything was quiet, frozen and beautiful.  A heavy fog blanketed the sun, creating the illusion of a moonrise.   The whole scene was magical, and you could not have asked for a more quintessential start to winter.

The winter solstice.  The shortest day of the year.  The longest night.  And the beginning of the sun’s journey back to us.
