Blessing of the Solstice

Winter at Bean Farm800x400

The Solstice is a time of deep contemplation, intention and responsibility for setting the course of the coming new yearly cycle. It is a period of deep stillness in the natural world – birds stop singing, plants stop growing, our own bodies turn inwards more to introspection than physical activity.

The Solstice and the days that extend to January 7th are considered the most powerful days of stillness and receptivity in the year. An opening to our influence and wishes.

I wish to share a picture that was given to me in pieces over many years that I am now just beginning to see more fully and I will try my best to honor it.

The Equinox was just last week and there is always an excitement and energy in the air that is unavoidable. All of us Humans and Animals go rushing about to prepare for the winter. It is pure instinct. All the animals are putting on winter fat and growing lush new coats of feather and fur, while we unpack the sweaters and split and stack wood.

Well all our partner farmers are rushing around gathering up the harvest before the killing frosts settle into the valleys and for some like Bob at Vermont Cranberry Company – he is waiting for the cold to bring on the crimson color to his berries before harvesting.
