I slip into this day, this season, this dark time of year where the unknown seems to take full force. I find myself greeting the elements when i take a walk naming my tree friends and having dialogues with all that surround me. I know I am not alone. This Solstice reminds me to reach out, to forgive, to stay unencumbered. I’m told the energy is about honoring and forgiving the structure that has held life together up until this point. Trust. May we own that part in each of us.
