the longest night of the year: sinking into the winter solstice

  i woke this morning before 6. just before my alarm went off. as i pried open my eyes + snuggled down under the covers to stay warm, i slowly  prepared myself for one of my favorite mornings all year long. the dark, mysterious, silent morning of the winter solstice. i crawled out of bed and headed to the living room. in the total darkness, i prepared a place for meditation + contemplation on the floor. i put down someRead More
