Embracing Light & Darkness

solstice candle

A candle lit in honor of the dance between light & darkness:

“I will love the light for it shows me the way;
yet i will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.”
~ Og Mandino

Happy Winter Solstice and New Moon beginning!

Embracing the gifts of this dark season, and sowing the seeds which will soon see the light of this brand new cycle.

“Because there are real gifts in darkness- deep rest, new dreaming, a sharpening of other senses that allow us to feel the present moment shape of our inner landscape. A seed left sitting on the table in a well lit room remains a seed. But a seed placed into the dark moist earth splits open and pushes new life up toward the light. What kind of seeds might you be in your life and our shared world?” ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer
