Candles in the Dark

This morning, a scant handful of thoughtful links on the meaning of light and the Winter Solstice, on what it means to be a small human spark glowing in the Great Round of Time.  Light in the darkness is always needed, but more so after the sad events of this last week.

Light for the children taken out of the world and their defenders, light for the families here on earth who grieve their passing, light for us all struggling to understand what happened... 

Bright Solstice to All, Abigail Padgett  

The Winter Solstice, Yule, Season of Peace and Quiet Beauty, Dolores Stewart Riccio

Winter Solstice Story Circle, Joanna Powell Colbert  

Golden Apples of the Sun, Waverly Fitzgerald

Let us all burn brightly then ever before, our lives, our gifts, our love. It is so needed.
