Winter Solstice

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.
~Oliver Herford~


Happy winter solstice! The world keeps turning, the seasons keep changing. Spend a few minutes today enjoying the beauty of nature: a bird, the bright stars. Take a deep breath, and go forward feeling peaceful. Winter is a time of rest and renewal.
