Fall Solstice

Progression of Lunar Eclipse, originally uploaded by __Dori__.

As we have just passed the shortest day of the year we are now moving towards the light. The days are getting longer. Right now by a few seconds a day, by the end of next month by a few minutes. It is a time of rebirth, holidays, gatherings and celebrations.
An event that has been recognized since Neolithic times to signify mating times, crops, and other rituals. It is something we don't really recognize when we live in the concrete jungle of a modern city. The disconnect between what sustains us, and our gratitude for it is lost in the hustle and bustle. Yesterday when we where driving down from Whistler i felt that the day was longer.. even by mere seconds and i was grateful.
