Happy Solstice, everyone! It feels a bit strange to say, “Brighter days are ahead!”, even though that is literally true (and thank goodness for that), because I think it’s hard to argue that we’re not headed for some metaphorically dark days. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend that you read this Sarah Kendzior piece: “We’re heading into dark times. This is how to be your own light in the Age of Trump.”
Let’s be each other’s lights, too, in the coming year, friends. Support each other. Love each other. Hang on to what is true, and hold tight to our values. Fight the darkness. Resist it. Keep making, keep doing good. Remember that Winter, though dark, is not a time of death – it is a time when seeds lay in wait to bloom. Don’t lose hope.
Peace, love, and kindness to all. Shine on!
