Winter Solstice


Tonight Phil and I were driving home. It was already dark, darkness comes so soon now. I was thinking about the Winter Solstice.

"Phil, today is the Winter Solstice. Tomorrow the days will begin to get longer."


"Oh, no," he moaned. "I just got the stinkin' lawn swings put away." Then he paused and under his breath he said, "The rusty buckets."


So, there you have it. So many reasons to celebrate the sun, screeching to a stop on it's journey south and deciding to come back. It means spring is on it's way. It means more daylight. It means warmth. And, obviously it means the lawn swings have a new title: rusty buckets. Stinkin' rusty buckets.

Did you guys celebrate the solstice in an appropriate manner? Did you dance?

Winter Solstice is my FAVORITE!!!
I danced and made magick, which is not the same as, well, you know.

I burned up my old stuff to get rid of and brought in new goals.

Yea for seasons.
