I would like to wish all you lovely people a Happy Solstice. It is one of the oldest celebrations and I can understand why. We live a cushioned life in our homes with our heating and food easily available all through the year, but for our ancestors the winters were long and hard. With the passing of the longest night they celebrated the turning of the year when the sun returned. I love the Solstice, it is my favourite festival, it is a celebration of nature and makes me feel very connected with the world around me, the seasons and with our ancestors.
and we woke up to this view
Welcome the sun back by lighting a candle tonight.
