Today marks the shortest day of the year. We can focus again on the gentle increase of daylight. Remember, when the light seems short and the chilly air gets you down: pour some hot water on your tea, let it steep for 5 minutes, and like the directions said on the box... dance with your loved one. It could be your dog, your cat, your partner, child, grandmother, or your toothbrush. "I light a few candles, so/the moon is no longer alone."
