Happy Solstice

We just got back from a Winter Solstice party, we drank some wine, danced in the clear, cold, dark night, named and anointed a mighty oak tree, offered libations, we all said a few words then drank some more wine.

It was great getting together with friends we hadn't seen in sometime and catching up on what's going on with everyone.

And if the days start getting longer tomorrow, then all the better.

Happy Holidays everyone!


  1. Happy Solstice day to you too and I'm pleased to hear that no sacrifices were involved!

    The days can get only get longer now....


  2. Happy Solstice! Many in AK are looking forward to the days getting longer. The beginning of the end of winter so to speak.

  3. Troubadour:

    Happy Solstice to you too. It can only go uphill from here with longer days. I can almost feel the difference already.

    do you have any video of the Moondance ?

  4. The anointing must have worked.

    We have an actual day of sunshine today. Not cloudy, not foggy, but sunny.


  5. Happy one day closer to spring :)

    I just love the photo on your masthead. Beautiful <3

    Wishing you many blessings in the new year~

  6. Thanks everybody. The sun did come back and we were able to get out today and go for a ride.

    Nikos, no sacrifices other than a few ounces of wine.

    Richard, I feel for you Alaskans with the low sun all winter.

    Bob, I am not as stealthy as you with a video camera as no electronic devices or flashlights were allowed. Besides, where would one conceal a camera when painted blue and dancing naked in the forest?

    Trobairitz, I love you.

    Fuzzy, thanks I like to change my theme and header photo every solstice and equinox to coincide with the season. And wishing to you and everyone the best in the new year.

  7. Sounds like fun. It must have been a marvelous night for a moondance!
