"The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory."
and today we celebrated the winter solstice.
Mother Nature needs to "chill out".
The crocus are peeking out from the warm black soil in my garden...
