Wishing You A Day Filled With Light And Lightness Of Being

The internet, especially the social networks, has made me aware of the entire world, not just my local hemisphere. (That’s a phrase you don’t hear everyday — “my local hemisphere”. ) I used to think today, the winter solstice, was a natural day of celebration since it signifies the end of the creeping darkness. For the past six months, ever since the summer solstice, darkness has been creeping into our days and stealing our light. Today we have reached the end. Tomorrow the light begins to grow, but only in the northern hemisphere. Down under, they begin a time of creeping darkness.

Still, since I live in the northern hemisphere, this is a day to celebrate the growing of the light.


Wishing you a day filled with light and lightness of being.

    Thank You!! That is very thoughtful of you. I wish you days filled with light, it brightness my soul, so I thought it would do the same for you.

    Hey Pat. It’s been a while. How have you been?

    Wishing you the same, despite feeling anything but lightness. Curiously, I seem to be using the darkest time of the year to stare into that same darkness, and in so doing, tapping into a vein of sadness and anger I didn’t know was there.

    • Pat Bertram Says:

      There always seems to be another vein of sadness or anger. Even now, after almost nine years, I still sometimes tap into such an unknown vein. The darkness doesn’t help, nor does the family and couple-oriented holiday season. I hope the coming lighter times will brighten your days a bit.
