thoughts behind the Solstice Studies:
December 21st marks the shortest hours of daylight in the year, and the longest night.
in response to what I can imagine was a very harsh time for our ancestors in the Northern Hemisphere, they developed a way to celebrate, to light up the night, to come together and feast long after the last big harvest, to feel a little warmer, and a little less alone.
the Solstice is about celebrating cycles.
it’s less about a linear path forward, marching into the New Year, the ‘new us’, and the next thing on our to-do list.
it’s a real pause. because the earth has paused, and forced us to coexist alongside the night a little longer than we might be comfortable with.
and it reminds us every single time:
that we will survive it.
we realize can rest into the night, the unknown, our own shadows, the darkness, as long as there’s a tiny flame and some kindling.
there’s a reason we can gaze into a fire for way too long and feel safer for it.
I like to call it: cavewoman tv.
