Happy Solstice

Today is my holiday, the winter solstice and I share it with all of you.
I tried to think of something appropriate to say but instead I'll rely on one of my favorite authors who said it better than I can, Charles Dickens.

 "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair......"

May you all enjoy a peaceful and bright  Solstice.

"I heard a fowl sing
In the corner of December.
An enchanted thing
And sweet to recollect that:
We are closer to spring
Than we were in September."
    Oliver Herford
