Creating connections through the arts and across cultures

Happy Winter Solstice

To greet you today, I'm offering you some links as gifts.

For the meaning of the lighting the darkness at Solstice, read Susan J. Tweit's Community of the Land's post on how Luminarias light the night. I agree...nothing like rows on rows of luminarias and the smell of pinon under the startling clarity of a Southwestern night sky.

TODAY IN HISTORY from The Library of Congress "American Memory" project is about as sweet as they come with snipets of poetry, photos, audio files of songs, and...the derivation of the word "winter."

The trailer for the film WINTER SOLSTICE with an ensemble cast of Anthony LaPaglia, Aaron Stanford, Mark Webber, Allison Janney, Michelle Monaghan, Brendan Sexton III, Ron Livingston, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Frank Wood, Kel O'Neill, Thomas Sadoski, Kathleen Bridget Kelly, Welker White, Jason Fuchs, Dana Segal. Sweet!

  1. Join hands and hearts,
    add your voice to theirs.
    Sound praises to the four directions,
    celebrate the sun’s re-birth.
