Tonight is the longest night of the year. I had originally hoped to take time off and really celebrate Solstice, but that was not to be, for many different reasons. Instead, a very nice dinner out at a new place is the celebration, but as nice as it was, I still haven't found the holiday spirit. The tree still is undecorated. There's no word on the deal to sell G's house. Everything is on hold, in transition, incomplete. True to solstice, we have to survive this long, cold, dark night in order to bask in the warm sunshine of happiness.
