Today we celebrate the winter solstice as the sun reaches its nadir in the sky. This is the moment of greatest darkness in the northern hemisphere. It is also the beginning of the return of the light. On this auspicious occasion, may you see your own inner light. May you see the light in others. May you be a light for others. May you be a light for this world—now and as our earth continues her forever journey around the sun.
“From out of the darkness and cold, the light and hope return.” –Anonymous
