Today, December 21, marks the Winter Solstice and year’s long night.
Tonight, I will be making soup and mulled wine. There will be candles, music, and perhaps a bit of reading from Neil Gaiman’s book, Norse Mythology as I mark the longest night of the year. There will also be music, particularly an album or two from Loreena McKennit. I will probably also be rereading this lovely poem by Susan Cooper, ‘The Shortest Day‘.
Happy Solstice, everyone!
