the word solstice comes from the latin for sun and standing still, and it is for a period of three to five days that the sun rises to its highest height, and then gradually, begins to sink to its lowest.
this has been a year of many turning points, some subtle, some not so much. it helps to know that i am not the only person experiencing these upheavals, these lessons, these challenges. it helps to know that lonely as my little boat feels in this big ocean, there's lots of us tacking to the same wind.
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
