Solstice Song

"Throw of the lingering darkness & rejoice in the Songs of Light." - quoted at bottom of card

                           Solstice Song

"The year begins, the year ends. Such is time as we have created it here on Earth. The power of winter is that it gives us time to reflect on what we have stuffed away in a dark corner (guilt, rage, sadness, regret), and gently bring it out in the candlelight. It is time to shake off the cold night and let yourself play in those lovely pure crystals. Let owl guide you through the darkness and let the doves remind you to be a peace with yourself. Of course, it is your choice - stay in the cold night or step int the embracing light - and play."  - quoted from the back of the card. - Sue Lion art and words

I love this day that marks the beginning of Winter.  It reminds me that Christmas is a few days away,  Winter turns to Spring, the promise of longer days of daylight, and a very good day to relax and enjoy.  Think I will bake some cookies for Christmas today. 
Happy Solstice!
