Find Time to Celebrate YOUR Solstice Today

Do you pause and celebrate the Solstice? It’s a wonderful way to mark a momentous, twice-yearly transition in our collective lives.

You can count on the Solstice.

Whether you live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere, the Solstice arrives twice in every 365 (or 366) days. It marks the farthest reach of the sun. Then it swings back to its center-point, marked by the Equinoxes.

So, the Solstice is part of a ponderous and profound mystery, this great migration of the spheres.

Slow down and savor…

Now, I invite you to pause in your busy day and take note.  Let it in, this movement of the light in and out, back and forth.

As E. M. Forster wrote:

What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?

Here in the North, we mark, today, the longest day of our year.  In New Hampshire, it’s going to be sizzling hot. The high sun bakes the earth and sends many of us toward nearby swimming holes.  Then, from here the days get shorter ’til they balance at the Autumn Equinox. And then they move further into darkness as winter draws near.

Meanwhile, in the South, it’s the Winter Solstice that we celebrate.  With the darkest day comes the promise of the return of the light, incrementally, from today onward.

Don’t forget the dark…

It’s easy to celebrate the light, that powerful energy that warms us and makes things grow.  But I invite you to celebrate the dark as well. It offers gifts that the light cannot.

So here’s one of my favorite poems about the dark, by one of my all-time favorite poets, Wendell Berry.  It’s called “To Know the Dark.” Enjoy!

It’s called “To Know the Dark.” Enjoy!

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.
