Happy Solstice

In the dead of winter here in the north daylight is few and far between. Today is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. I always find myself contemplating new beginnings and the return of the sun at this time of the year. The solstice brings thoughts of joy and rebirth. I know if I just wait for the sun to make it's slow march back to my part of the world, the miracle that is spring will be back once again. I can understand why so many joyous holidays in human history have appeared around this time of the year.

Here's wishing you all a very Happy Solstice.
