solstice adventure

While I'm always delighted to welcome the sun back after the solstice, this year I find I'm not fighting the dark as much. I think I'm starting to see the charm that Wendell Berry describes so beautifully here:

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.
