Winter solstice is upon us.  Darkness.  The long night.  I celebrate these dark days by lighting many candles - warm, cozy light to chase away the shadows.  

Marking the winter solstice is a ritual of hope - hope that the sun will return and the daylight will grow longer.

I am usually full of hope.  While I no longer have hope that these socks destined for men's size 12 feet will be done in time for holiday gifting, I do have hope that some day they will be finished.  

And I have hope that the light will return and the cycle of seasons will continue. Embrace the dark for out of the dark comes light.
