Rage, rage against the dying of the light

CandleHappy Solstice, dear readers!

On this most ancient and most human holiday, the sun in the Piedmont set very close to the moment of the Solstice. But don’t worry, I lit a candle on my desk so I’m sure the sun will return earlier and earlier each day for at least the next six months or so.

How are you celebrating tonight?

    Quietly at home. A candle burning against the darkness.
