December 21. At last. Again
Its December 21st. The ancient holiday celebration that signals both end and beginning. The winter solstice.
I have long contemplated the fact that nearly every religion, culture, and people have a designated holiday near this time. The timeless need of humankind for a symbol of hope in the midst of darkness.
The end is near. (this is a short post.)
Think about it. And then, whatever your choice, celebrate. Whether the Festival of Lights, walk a labyrinth lighted with candles, or gathered with family in awe of the new born Christ child, give thanks.
Tomorrow the sun will rise once more, and the light will begin its increase once more.
The adventure begins again. Live it well.
