At 10.44 tomorrow morning (UT) it will be the Winter Solstice. The moment when as a planet, we appear to pause and take a breath before moving back towards longer days and the promise of spring. It’s been a tough year, there’s no getting away from it. And the dark will still outweigh the light right up until the Spring Equinox. So grab hold of what you hold dear and pull it close. Make sure you verbalise your gratitude for that which makes you ‘you’. Embrace solitude. Embrace company. Toast the sunrise on the shortest day, and know that I will be raising a glass with you. Sláinte!
