Celebrating the Lengthening of Days

Here in the northern hemisphere, we’ve turned the corner on the year.  The days are getting longer.  Not, admittedly, much longer.  Not, as far as most of us are concerned, long enough yet.  But we are definitely on our way.

It amazes me, every year, when this happens.  And it does just happen, slowly, incrementally, the days lengthen, without any of us having to actually lengthen them.

I find it comforting to know that, no matter what, the world keeps on spinning.  The days get longer and then shorten again.  Spring arrives with all its new growth, through the maturity of summer, on into fall and another year unfolds.  There’s an innate wisdom there, and safety.  We can relax a bit, knowing that tomorrow will be just a little brighter than today.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

    Reminds me of the lama, who sat in the meadow. and said “Sitting, only sitting, and the grass grows green by itself.”

    Of course, the lama never had a lawn in New England!

    Maybe the lama knew better than to try…
