Winter Solstice

At 12:47 tonight, the very nadir of midwinter darkness arrives...the sun at its weakest point.

The fire's lit and candles burn. The Yule log works its magic.

Sting's new album, "If On A Winter's Night..." casts a spell.
Winter's the time for reflection, he says.
Introspection.
Contemplation.

Peace.

I have many of Stings new songs on my IPOD...Love the idea of your fireside Christmas with Chanticleer! Could have used it at our Christmas Open House the other night...

So many people are writing today of Sting's new album. It must be a winner. I do so love this special day of winter!

I haven't heard Sting's new album, but that can be rectified. The photo caught the essences of the feeling right now.
