happy solstice. of all the holidays this time of year, take your pick, it's the one I prefer. nothing against the baby Jesus, weird red-dressed fat guys dispensing presents, miraculous oil lamps, or even Maulana's seven principles, but the imminently observable passing of light and darkness and the moment it gives us to pause and consider is what will have me lighting a candle tonight. no chanting, weird robes, or consumerism required. peace.
