With the Winter solstice behind us, so, too, are the darkest days of the Season.
Today, light steals us back seconds at a time. Then minutes. Then hours.
But never days.
Days must, by cosmic design, be balanced with both the dark and the light. Life, by Human design, shares that same balance.
These last few years have felt like slow light sneaking back into our lives. Through the company of friends and guests. Through the talents of practitioners and musicians. Through the laughs and giggles of children. Through the highs and through the lows.
Our overwhelming observation is that the dark without is endured by the light found within—at times, within oneself, gifted to others. Most times, from others gifted to oneself.
And, more than we care to admit, just enough light within to stay within and stay alive.
Everyone has a song to sing. Please, keep singing. For yourself. For those around you. And for those far, far, far from you.
Let Winter begin. Let light return.
