Winter Solstice- Austin Family Photographer

I woke up today and asked Jeff to clarify the meaning of the word, ‘magnanimous’. Somehow, I had forgotten the exact meaning, or maybe I never learned it! EEK..let’s go with the former. He went on to explain that it means very generous in a forgiving way. Seems wonderfully fitting that I randomly thought of that word on the morning of the darkest, longest day of the year. This is a time to reflect upon the sacred gifts of our sun, whose constant light and warmth gives us life.

Sharing a beautiful poem with you, for you. It’s always reminded me of winter solstice.

May we all aim to reach our greatest potential as beings, separately, and together…

Sometimes – Sheenagh Pugh

Sometimes things don’t go, after all,
from bad to worse.  Some years, muscadel
faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don’t fail,
sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well.A people sometimes will step back from war;
elect an honest man, decide they care
enough, that they can’t leave some stranger poor.
Some men become what they were born for.Sometimes our best efforts do not go
amiss, sometimes we do as we meant to.
The sun will sometimes melt a field of sorrow
that seemed hard frozen:  may it happen for you.
