Cold is the Winter

Solstice day usually sneaks by me, but this December I wanted to pause and reflect. Is it only symbolic? Today marks the turning point. This is the day when farmers start thinking about next year’s crops.

“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.” — Victor Hugo

I wanted to take a moment, a day, and look back one more time. Grieve my losses, cry, pray, and maybe light a candle. This year was jarring to my system, to my very core. Also, I wanted to check in with myself, get quiet. Do I need to forgive anyone? How about releasing the chokehold I keep on myself?

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance! Now, I walk forward. Laugh, dance, hug, watch good movies and be with the people I love.
