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.
