solstice roundup


Pretty grim outside right now, so I submit this picture of what Block Island can look like even as the winter solstice approaches—tomorrow at 5:11 pm. It's the shortest day of the year, with nine hours and 32 minutes of daylight. I don't know about you, but I find it difficult to sleep when it's dark all the time. Or I sleep at the wrong times.
   On the runup to Christmas, you might be interested in looking at these maps of religious affiliations in the US.
   Speaking of Christmas, Wear Your Music has its last shipping day on Monday, aka my sister's (still the President of the Garden Club!) birthday. Check out this article about Hannah's company.
  At a much higher price point, maybe you feel like treating yourself to a fabulous tile installation—it will fill you with cheer just to look at the possibilities on line.
   And in case you want to spend the spring equinox with medicine men in Peru and Lake Titicaca, check out out friend Aymar's tour here.
