Winter Solstice Is Here

In a couple short hours the winter solstice will arrive. If your response to that statement is "So what" you  most likely do not live in the cold, northern part of our country - or your country - or the world.
For me personally, the solstice marks the arrival of colder - usually much colder - weather, a blanket of deep snow covering the ground and later in January and February some of the most beautiful clear blue skys of the entire year. Yes, the sun is returning and we've made it through the darkest part of the cold long winter. If that's not something to celebrate I don't know what is.

You can find some winter solistice myths HERE.

Today's challenge is to find a few minutes to simply watch the play of natural light on the surfaces around you. Doing so can be a form of meditation and a wonderful stress reliever.
