Happy Solstice

Today the world emerges from its axial tilt-induced darkness and heads toward days of increasing sunshine. Not to take anything away from other holiday traditions, this darkness is the real reason for the season, and we like to light a candle to symbolize warm light in the deeps of the cold dark.

As we enter the new cycle of light, I wish you and your family warmth, happiness and joy today and all year long. May the bonds you nurture this week ground you and sustain you in the days ahead.
