21.12.12 - Optimism and the Solstice

Quilting

If you were making a calendar, would you envision it being useful for 5125 years into the future? The Mayans were a most optimistic people. I think that is the message they meant to send to us, 5125 years into their future - believe in the best of humanity, and just watch what we will do.

And today is the winter solstice - the shortest and darkest day of the year. It means that I get one more minute of sun tomorrow in my day. This is one of my favourite days of the year.

There are the stars in the sun, they just shine. I started quilting the runner last night. I love the quilting part.

I hope that, despite the awful things that people do and the bad things that happen both personally and on a larger, even huge scale, that we will remain the stunningly optimistic people that those calendar makers envisioned. If we do, imagine where we will be 5125 years from now.

All the best for the holidays and the new year to you and yours. This coming year is going to be amazing.

I will be reading and likely posting here over the holidays, but today is a special day and the day to make this wish for you. Oh and surely this is a felicity, see you over at Felicity's.

Best,

Leanne
