it’s raining as i type this. i am in a state of deep relaxation. last night, 20 friends came to celebrate winter solstice and new beginnings. after wine and food, we all went downstairs to make a wish inside the circle and hear a cello performance by a friend who is pregnant with her first child. there was an impromptu duet with intricate harmonies with another friend. their voices filled the candlelit space and transformed it into one of pure light.
i realized how sacred it is to not only share solstice with friends but to enjoy such profound moments with the man i dearly love.
