Today is the longest night ... today is the first day of winter, when the world is at its coldest and the land goes into a long sleep ... but the Wheel keeps turning. I don't think anyone would disagree that this has been a hard, and at times bitter year ... I know for me and mine, we have suffered many loses of family and loved ones, as have many others ... I know many are dealing with watching their loved ones battle disease and old age and their own inner darkness ... we have suffered loss, and we have suffered hurt ... but the Wheel keeps turning. But in this darkness, we also rejoice with the promise of new life ... children not yet born ... hopes rekindled for a brighter tomorrow ... and friends and family still with us - in our lives and in our hearts ... for the Wheel keeps turning.
So I wish for you a most Blessed Jul, my dears ... for while this night is long and the wind blows cold ... Spring is coming.
