December, January, February. In the Netherlands, winter arrives and stay for at least these three months. Maybe you dreaded this season, like I did. The temperature falls, the days get shorter, the nights longer and the sun seems to disappear, as if she wants to hide for this dark period, just like most of us wants to do.
I learned about Winter Solstice, a few years ago: each year manifesting around December 21. Here in the Northern Atmosphere, the days will lengthen again and although nature is mostly still asleep…the sun and moon will bring new light, new energy….
Nature, Mother Earth, showing us how to live: it is ok to slow down a bit during winter-time, recharge, take in the new light, absorb that new energy.
My dear art-family and two of our dear guest-art-friends did a marvelous job on a topic which became and is very important to me. This will be the last compilation of 2016, some of us will celebrate Christmas, we all say goodbye to the old year, welcome the new.
The Strix plus friends will also sleep for a while.
Recharge, taking in the new light, absorbing new energy.
So, set a fire, light candles, celebrate: feel the strengthening energy of Winter Solstice.
Enjoy winter, enjoy the pieces of art below:
Thank you for reading and the continuous support!
