Today is the winter solstice. The planet tilts just so to its star, lists and holds circling in a fixed tension between veering and longing, and spins helpless, exalted, in and out of that fleet blazing touch.

– Annie Dillard

May the returning light shine brightly for you and fill your life with love and joy!

And here is an animated Neil Gaiman poem, “The Mushroom Hunters.” Not really Solstice related, but it gave me all the feels.
