  • “In the depth of winter, I finally learned
    that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
    – Albert Camus



    I have painted these trees
    the colors of hummingbird wings
    that your soul
    may discover landscapes of possibility
    out of this deep winter Darkness.

    I am burning incense –
    sandalwood, cedar, sage –
    for clarity and strength.
    Here is ancient cloth
    from a Druid altar
    saved for us this day
    to wear on our Solstice Journey
    into the Dream Time.

    In this sacred Chalice,
    I offer you Living Water
    from a secret well
    a hidden Source
    available for those who walk
    in the footsteps
    of the Wise Ones,
    That y0u may be reborn in hope.

    Oh, my world weary Friend,
    leave your disbelief
    at the Sanctuary door,
    with your mud boots
    and winter cloak.
    The Sun is rising,
    the sun is rising.
    Come, and step into Hope,
    Delight,
    and this cleansing Holy Fire
    of our Solstice celebration.
