today i'm lighting a candle for you, my friends

Today is the Winter Solstice.
I'm lighting a candle and thinking of each one of you, my blogging friends.
Blessings to all.

Just Delicate Needles
~ Rolf Jacobsen

It's so delicate, the light.
And there's so little of it. The dark
is huge.
Just delicate needles, the light,
in an endless night.
And it has such a long way to go
through such desolate space.
So let's be gentle with it.
Cherish it.
So it will come again in the morning.
We hope.

Hugs back, Gary !!

Adullamite ... no it means that today was the shortest day of the year. Now, we can be happy that the days will be getting longer, Mr. Sunshine.

gz ~ I am in complete agreement. I long for more sun.

Blessings to all!
