December 21: Happy Winter Solstice!

The bad news is that this is the shortest day of the year, and the darkness is so strong and so dark. The good news is that it that after tonight the sun begins coming back. We made it!

I wanted to wax poetic about ancient solstice celebrations, remembering the tension of light in the darkness, and why giving makes us feel good, but it’s not really happening today. So instead please enjoy these lovely wintry¬†illustrations of the talented Becca Stadtlander. You can find more of her work on her website, and snatch it up for yourself at her etsy shop.

May your solstice be full of light and warmth, and may you be cozy like these sweet Inuit friends.

4 more days until Christmas!
