In Latin, solstice means sun set still and Winter Solstice is the great stillness before the Sun's strength builds, and days grow longer.
It can be a time to rest and reflect. It's the fruitful dark out of which new life can eventually emerge. In ancient times and for
some today, the darkness itself is the spiritual cradle into which the Sun is reborn.
Father Time with his sickle appears briefly, and bids us farewell, before the newborn babe appears at New Years. Everything lies
dormant in the silent night, a sacred time of rest before the awakening, and the slow build toward longer days.

The many seasonal gatherings help to carry us through the dark time of the year. There's a melancholy that can be
overwhelming without the promise of a new beginning. It's normal to feel that tinge of sorrow at life's endings, here at the
dying of the year.
Parties and holiday gatherings remind us that we're all in it together. We long for a sense of belonging, being part of a tribe,
feeling that deep bond of family.

The dark before the dawn, just like New Moons, can be a powerful moment of magic, drawing in what you'd like to see happen
in the new year.

WOLF _ First Step/Sketching

WOLF / Native American and Celtic custom regard Wolf as the way of find the deepest levels of self, of inner knowing and intuition.
This is symbolized by the image of the wolf howling at the moon. Native Americans have long regarded wolves as teachers or pathfinders.
The wolf, is a symbol of the night.
This time can seem lonesome and scary to us. But it is also the time when through dreams, we may discover valuable things about ourselves.
This is a lonely path. To truly come to understand yourself, you must be alone, undeterred by the beliefs, judgements and views of others.
The wolf teaches us to learn about our inner self and to discover our inner power and strength. However, to achieve this, we must take
risks and face our deepest fears. Wolf requires sincerity. Though demanding a lot of us, much is given in return; a spirit helper that is
always there to help, giving us extraordinary powers of endurance. Learn to hear the voice within yourself, which in silence is as clear as
the sound of the wolf howling in the night.
Wolves mate for life. The clan has a solid social structure, in which all adults participate in the upbringing of the young. Wolves are fiercely
loyal to their mates, with a strong sense of family whilst upholding individualism. Though their clans are highly organised, they are truly
free spirits. Wolf’s medicine includes death and rebirth, facing death with dignity and courage, Spirit teaching, guidance in dreams and
meditations, instinct linked with intelligence, social and family values, steadfastness, skill in protection of self and family, outwitting enemies,
ability to pass unseen, taking advantage of change.


WHALE _ First Step /Sketching

 photo whale polaroides_blog_zpsiulac2vk.jpg

Whale is an ancient symbol for creation. In Jewish and Islamic spiritual texts, the whale symbolizes containment, concealment and
resurrection—as Jonah was swallowed by the whale and forced to wander in the dark of the belly for three days before being spit
back up. There comes a time for each of us when we are swallowed up by the whale and descend into our dark places. In the belly
of the whale, each of us teeter between heaven and earth, being both macrocosm and microcosm; at any instant, we could tip over
into macrocosm and enlightenment. It is in the dark night of the soul where we meet the Creator.

In modern psychotherapy, this period of containment and imprisonment symbolizes man’s descent into the darkness of his shadow
or into his Unconscious for a period of introspection and death, before being “reborn” or resurrected as a new being.

Tiny Person's Bedroom

There is that time in life when you have to leave your parent's bedroom and boldly step it up to your own private space, your very own bedroom.

We live on a blue planet
that circles around a ball of fire
next to a moon that moves the sea,
and you don’t believe in miracles?

Earth, also called the world and, less frequently, Gaia is the third planet from the Sun, the densest planet
in the Solar System, the largest of the Solar System's four terrestrial planets, and the only astronomical 
object known to accommodate life.

The earliest life on Earth arose at least 3.5 billion years ago. Earth's biodiversity has expanded continually 
except when interrupted by mass extinctions. Although scholars estimate that over 99 percent of all species 
that ever lived on the planet are extinct, Earth is currently home to 10–14 million species of life, including 
over 7.3 billion humans who depend upon its biosphere and minerals.

And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
