Winter's Coming

What can convey the feeling of winter's coming? Each of us has some memories related to this recurring event. At a moment, things that do not seem to be strictly related come out, all caught in a glimpse, like part of the whole.

The importance of the solstice is far beyond science and astrology and goes back centuries. In the folk tradition the winter solstice marks the beginning of a season that already conceals within itself the seeds of the Spring's rebirth. With the gradual increase of the hours of light, nature prepares for revival. After the winter solstice we leave behind the darkness and chaos of the past year and we prepare to embrace a new year full of prosperity.

So welcome back Jack Frost!
