It was weird for me to feel like I really needed to see some snow on the ground, especially considering that I knew I would not enjoy walking through it. But it was a pleasant sight to see.
Then, in the early hours, there was also a lunar eclipse. For the first time in over 370 years, the lunar eclipse coincided with the winter solstice.
Truth be told, it's hard for me not to hope that it means that the tides are changing. Considering that the days are just going to get longer after so much darkness, I'm really hoping it's some metaphor for life right now. Perhaps it's a good time to consult the tarot cards. Perhaps it's a good time to start changing our perspectives on all the negative things that have happened in the past several months.
Here's to the hope that this solstice is bringing.
