Happy Solstice. Bring on the light.

And so, last night, passed the shortest night of the year. Today, it is officially winter. And each day, from here on, the sunlight stretches a little longer.

Happy solstice.

Thanks to Tanya Richman and Paul Cumin for the photos below, which were captured a week ago… but seemed timeless enough to stand in for our solstice post.

People complain that Facebook is full of negativity and trolling, but I have found it to be full of people posting photos of this place we are lucky enough to live, expressing their wonder and gratitude. I like it.
