Today is the longest night and the shortest day in one of the most southerly capital cities in the world. There rain and hail is incessant and the amber glow of my salt lamp guides my thoughts towards reflecting on life, love, and the progress of time.
Yule is a time to give thanks and to take stock of your life. In amongst the chaos of the world, I am grateful to be alive right now, in a warm house with a working body and a working mind. Just giving thanks for the simple things and trying to live fully in the moment is a powerful way to celebrate yule. Remember that you are loved.
