Last night we celebrated the solstice, as we do every year.  Grace and Whit joined us for the first, and last, time.  My thoughts on the solstice, darkness and light, and my family’s many-year tradition are here, on the Huffington Post.

And today, we turn back towards the light.

    A post well worth clicking through to. Thank you for sharing your tradition. I have been feeling nudges to make the solstice a larger part of this season for my family; this inspires me to do so.

    One of my fave posts of yours on HuffPo. Even though I have never attended this party, I felt myself get choked up and achy at the thought of it being over.

    Left you a comment there but I don’t think my comments are showing up. I’ll check back later because now I’m curious whether they are or not. Either way–wanted to tell you what a cool tradition this is. And it was a beautiful post as always.

    Hi Lindsey – Check out Peter Mayer’s song “The Longest Night”. Beautiful lyrics about the winter solstice.
