Night has come, maybe a few seconds later. Or did morning come a few seconds earlier today? Winter is here–I have always dreaded those days of enclosure, the cold, the world so much smaller. But this season brings clarity, the promise of new sun, longer days, more light.
The darkness that has prevailed in recent weeks is lifting now, as if to rejoice in the holiday.
Light makes way for new starts, new life, new love. Seasons pass, and leave us wiser–we hope–with memories that nourish our souls, with memories that break our hearts.
