Hi friends. Tomorrow's the winter solstice, did you know? Longest, darkest night of the year. It's an auspicious time—a nice little turning point. Over the last months, see, the year was turned toward darkness. Now, it'll be turned toward light. Because I don't want to celebrate consumerism or religion, I try to make everything—my feasts, my libations, my friendly gatherings, my journeys homeward to family, my green tree branches and my white twinkling lights—all about that.
