Though I tend to think of the Winter Solstice in more lyrical terms, it occurred to me today out of the blue that there may be more practical aspects.

As the ‘shortest day of the year’, if you have cares, today there’s less time to dwell on them, and if you are a child, unhinged for Christmas Day to finally arrive, there’s less time today to wait.

I’m pretty sure these two ideas are sound…

Happy Christmas and New Year!
