The solstice has come around again, as it does every season.

The darkness has grown over the last six months, and for some, it weighs heavy on the soul.






If I never loved, I never would have cried. ... )


This year, the Longest Night brings with it a fleeting extra shadow—but even shadows bear beauty and promise.

For those lucky enough to have clear skies tonight, you'll be treated to the first Solstice Eclipse in 456 years.

And after this long night brings tomorrow's distant dawn, the light will come again.

The spring will come again.






It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance ... )


A Joyful Solstice to you all!

May all the gifts of Blessing, Renewal and Redemption find their way to you in the coming year.

Remember, no matter how dark and cold and long the winter night might seem ...

There will always come a spring.

Here it is, the Winter Solstice again. Since [livejournal.com profile] quelonzia and I were married on the Summer Solstice of 1997, I guess that makes this is our twelfth-and-a-half anniversary -- an eighth of a century.

Today, we had our first real date together since I moved out: lunch, followed by James Cameron's magnificent Avatar, which we both loved. I'm glad we saw it together, and I'm glad that was the movie we got together to see.

Happy Anniversary, baby. I've got you on my mind.

Solstice Greetings, everyone, and peace and good will to one and all!

On this, the shortest day and longest night of the year, let us remember that it is, indeed, darkest before the dawn, and in the cold of winter, embrace each other in a spirit of love, fellowship, and joy.


"Praise be to the distant sister sun, joyful as the silver planets run."

On this, the shortest day of the year, [livejournal.com profile] quelonzia and I would like to wish all our friends and family all the gifts of Blessing, Renewal and Redemption for the coming year.

May we find laughter in the jokes that Coyote will play.

May we find strength to stand against greed and wickedness, and courage to speak the truth.

May we find peace, and joy, and love.

And I say... it's all right.
