Celebrating the Winter Solstice
June 28, 2013


Oh Joy! Oh Bliss!

Today is the Winter Solstice,

I turn from the spiral into darkness to embrace hope and the lightness of spirit the longer days bring.

Friday, the 21st of June 2013

Winter is usually a time of ¬†psychological and physical struggle especially whilst I lived in Melbourne with its relentless grey days. In contrast to last year, this winter has been a doddle. My mood has been much more upbeat with Castlemaine’s sunny days and physically, I am faring better. There is still the coldest month of July ahead but I have made a good start.¬†

The winter solstice was celebrated in Belgrave in the Dandenong Ranges with its 7th annual lantern parade on the 22nd of June whilst in Castlemaine, there was the inaugural Village Winter Fair.
