winter solstice

the winter solstice marks the new year for me.  it is the beginning of the return of the sun.  it was raining when i woke this morning around 6:30.  it rained all day.  it is just after 6pm now and it is still raining.  it's a beautiful way to start the new year in these hills that have been thirsty for so long. 
i am definitely a sun worshiper.  staal calls me a heliotrope because he so often finds me basking in any sliver of sunshine available.  i look forward to the warming and lengthening days but for now i'm grateful for the wet winter even if it is a bit cold and gray.
