Happy Winter Solstice

Winter has finally come to it’s shortest day. From here things will start to get lighter.

I always find these dark winter days tough going but now with days of festive cheer ahead, I can see brightness ahead.

For a little while, let us forget all the uncertainty that lays before us. And enjoy this coming Holiday Season. The sun will rise tomorrow and for that I am grateful.

Today, the 21st December is the Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere. Finally day length will start going the right way. We’ve had a grey few weeks and have not seen much sunshine. But the sun was there briefly this morning just as it rose about 9am only to be swallowed by a bank of cloud.

Happy Winter Solstice

Today is the Winter Solstice and I find myself breathing a sigh of relief. At least from now the days will be getting longer and not shorter. And what is more we have had the sun out for most of the day and I got a lovely walk. This in one of my favourite trees in the neighbourhood – an old ash tree, gnarled and worn with a great cavity. A true elder of our community, who has seen many winter solstices.

Wishing you all a very Happy Winter Solstice
