I think one of the purposes of my life is to make the world a little better, using my skills (Flash- and web development, innovative thinking), my open mind for others, and my interest for almost everything.
The light is waning, and the earth seems to stands still. This calm pause in action plays within the beauty of night, encouraging us to delve into the darkness inside. Yule is the honoring of returning light, as we officially enter winter on December 21. We stand at the horizon of our darkest hour, gathering warmth in the Sun's promise of growth and renewal.
Thank you for the star ! ~ Happy Holiday Hugs ~ Alice
The NJ Gardening/Farming Meetup Group is planning a Pot luck ~ Earthday Celebration on April 19th starting at 1pm at Basil Brook Organic Pharm. There will be entertainment, free table set up space for crafters, artists and other Meetup groups. There's also plenty of room for those who wish to campout for the night & a hiking trail runs through the back of the farm along the brook.
Efficient use of the sun's energy is not necessarily a modern phenomena. Many centuries ago the Anasazi Indians of Southern Colorado found a way to capture the oblique rays of a winter sun. They simply built their stone houses against the south slope of canyon walls. The remains of their solar dwellings are still with us today.
