As I do every year on this night, I look back to the Solstice night the year everything in my world was deconstructing.  I don’t dwell on it. But…it is there. Part of  hiraeth, something I will always have with me.  This year, however, I found a new word.  A word that encompasses some of hiraeth but in a good and sweet way.  Hygge. A Danish word for home, comfort, coziness.  Something one definitely needs on the longest night of the year.

This year while I recall past years I will also be relishing the cozy comfort of my little world as it exists now.  Thankful for the people that have helped me arrive here and hopeful (as always) for the coming of the light tomorrow and Spring.
