Solstice 2014: Light
I'm grateful to count among my friends so many individuals who make a positive difference in the world every day by the work they do and the people they are. Tonight I am reminded that there is light in the company of good people -- and I am better for having spent time with a dozen of them.
We ate more than our fill of deviled eggs, bubbly drinks, fondue made with all the good stuff, and sweet potato pie with bourbon -- we managed to consume a few vegetables and a wonderful salad with apples and pecans as well . . . so perhaps it wasn't total gluttony. In any case, we celebrated the solstice (a day early) by conjuring some light and laughter with friends (nearly half of whom were age four or younger).
Tomorrow winter arrives.
