Day 17: The infinite hope of the Winter Solstice

22 Dec 2017 the seasons

Oh, fellow wild souls. The winter solstice is one of my most favorite days of the entire year. Perhaps because it is so full of potential + hope. Perhaps because it is the ultimate reminder of the cycles of life, the flow of nature, the turning of the world, and how everything about life, death, and the universe is meant to be. Tucked within the darkness of this day is the infinite hope that exists in the middle of theRead More

Well, I suppose it actually is on its way, but it is just taking its own sweet time in arriving up here in the nordic lands. Perhaps it’s the same for you, fellow North American friends, wherever you are. You see, within the course of 24 hours, for the past month, we have had rain, hail, snow, sunshine and wind. And that literally happensRead More
