Que la paz y belleza de la estación brille, brille en tu corazon.
 
 
This Winter there is much turmoil and sorrow in the world, and much beauty, lovingkindness and joy.  
 
May you…
 
“Wing your way through
the sorrow,
lift your wings in gratitude.”*

May the peace and beauty of the season shine brightly in your heart.
May your candle of hope illuminate the spaces around you. 
May you speak up for those whose voices have been silenced, care for those who are suffering. 
May you be inspired by the beauty of the natural world, and held in love.
