In “light” of today’s solstice I share a photo I’ve posted before of my daughter Lily’s first snow this year in November up in Bala, Muskoka Lakes Region where my Mum lives. Tonight is her annual solstice party…we gather round the bonfire into which we toss something we desire to let go of presently…then it’s slowcooked chili & appies & libations. I love this community of 800 in the off-season, it’s very special to me as they have openly embraced my family lovingly. I feel deeply grateful to be here today to celebrate life…the passing of the old into renewal of light. What a difference a year makes…
I honestly wasn’t certain I’d be here this year (I have recently been diagnosed Bipolar II)…thanks be to God I am. The only piece missing from tonight’s party is my hubby who’ll join us the 23rd. The stars have aligned…I can honestly say I’m happy.
Darkness is the absence of light. How tremendous, magnificent it is to have found my light again.
For those of you buried beneath…know the light will return slowly but surely the darkness will recede blossoming into your pure light once again. Never give up. I believe in you.
