Here are my photos. Perhaps I should have cut out some more, but I simply couldn't. These are what I want to share with all of you, an offering of golden light. 

It is this moment, when the darkness turns inward on itself and the light returns. the solstice, the celebration, the bright chill of winter. there is, in all of us, this light. and, too, there is the darkness. i am seeking my own light always, calling it in, though sometimes i settle sleepily into the dark corners of myself, waiting for the light to seek me, instead. 

this past year for me has been one with a lot of darkness. but it is true, that at the darkest hour we are closest to the dawn. there is so much truth in everything. this (the truth) is the light, this is my heart. i seek truth, i seek love, i seek myself. i offer you these photos as part of this story, as part of the pursuit of each of our hearts, of each of our respective and collective beacons in the storm.
