belated solstice wishes

A fat yellow moon rose last night and hung in the eastern sky for ages. It seemed full of promise, glowing and lovely, as jolly, in its way, as the mythical man in red who's expected any moment now. The darkest night of the year has passed and the days will soon be growing longer, bringing with them thoughts of a fresh new garden and that delicious sense of possibility that arrives with each new year. I hope that you are all well, that you are warm and toasty and full of hot chocolate and fudge. Happy holy days.

The moon this Christmas was breathtaking here, too. On the way to midnigh mass with my family I kept thinking of that line from The Night Before Christmas: "The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow/
Gave objects the luster of midday below."

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

What a beautiful, hopeful message. Happy holidays to you, and it's great to hear from you again! You're always missed, even if you go away only briefly.

Well, the solstice is past, meaning the days are getting incrementally longer, toward summer. (such as it is here) We had a nice moon tonight.
