I have been yearning for an evening at home. On Monday, both kids stayed home, and so did Andy and I. We had a nice supper and went to sleep early. Well, at least Andy and I did.
In the morning, it was still dark. I turned on the Christmas tree lights and wrote this.
as solstice night approaches
I dress our tables in clean, pressed cloths
prepare of feast of red, green and gold
light fresh candles
after the meal, we retire at nine
to dream our dreams
a feast of hopes, fears, desires
on this, the longest night
question: how did you observe solstice?
