Happy Winter Solstice...

Outside it is cold.  It is dark.  It is very windy.  I can hear the wind thrashing and whipping the tree branches just beyond the window pane.  It is howling like a pack of hounds.  Tonight is the longest night of the year and it certainly feels like it.  So, hold your loved ones tight and be warmed by your memories and your good intentions.  

Happy Winter Solstice!

Hey Erin! It certainly is a "winter wonderland" outside. I was forced to go out into the cold today. I fared better than I thought. I actually made a find that I think makes up for my misery!

Hey Sarkilahtii! You stay warm too!

Thank goodness the Solstice is over...every winter I wait for the days to get longer again...my SAD gets worse each year and it really does respond to the length of the day!

I know what you mean Lynn! I sit under a sun lamp and take extra vitamin D. It helps, but it still hurts. I am definitely a child of the sun.
