To start the day … “Let It Snow, Let It Snow … not in Florida”!!


~~December 22, 2015~~


At this time of the year, the weather is usually cold.

We are on or near the Winter Solstice with signals the official first day of winter.

In three days it will be Christmas Day.

This is a beautiful song that goes together well with winter time.

However, that is not the case in Florida.

While cool, there is no snow and the expected temperatures are in the 80’s.

Partial Lyrics

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful.
And since we’ve got no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Oh, it doesn’t show signs of stopping,
And I’ve brought some corn for popping.
The lights are turned way down low,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I’ll hate going out in the storm!
But, if you really hold me tight,
All the way home I’ll be warm!

The fire is slowly dying,
And my dear, we’re still good-by-ing.
But, as long as you love me so,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It snow! ……

At the end of the day …. “Winter Solstice: December 21, 2015″!!


~~December 21, 2015~~ 


The winter solstice will fall in the early morning hours of Dec. 21-22, marking the first day of winter and the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

The astronomical event also means it’ll be the longest day of the year for those who live south of the equator.

The solstice starts at 4:48 a.m. UTC on Dec. 22 (which is 11:48 p.m. ET on Dec. 21), the moment when the Northern Hemisphere is pointed at its farthest distance from the sun.

What You Need to Know About Winter Solstice 2015


What is it?
The 23.5 degree tilt in Earth’s axis of rotation creates a rise and fall appearance of the sun over the course of a year. During the winter solstice, the Northern Hemisphere is pointed at its furthest distance from the sun, bringing less light and colder temperatures. The winter solstice occurs at a specific time, not just day. This year, at 12:11 p.m. EST on Saturday, Dec. 21, the sun shone directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, the farthest south the sun reaches. In the Southern Hemisphere, it was the longest day of the year.

So then what happens?
After the solstice occurs, days grow longer for north of the equator, as the sun appears farther above the horizon. This movement culminates in the longest day of the year on June 21.

Is it related to Christmas? 
Sort of. There’s no date in the Bible specifically pointing to Dec. 25 as the birth of Jesus Christ, so some experts believe the Christian church selected the date several centuries later, tying it to the Roman holiday Dies Natalis Solis Invictus, or the Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun. The winter solstice serves a turning point in many cultures, which is why it was tied to the Mayan apocalypse scare that marked the end of the calendar and to some believers, the end of the world.


Just how short is the day? 
North America will only see nine hours and 32 minutes of daylight during the solstice, and 14 hours and 28 minutes of nighttime. But the winter solstice doesn’t always happen at the same time. Next year northern dwellers can brace for the solstice at 11:03 p.m. In 2015 it will occur on Dec. 22.

What are other important dates for the sun?
The summer solstice occurs on June 21, the longest day of the year in the north. On March 21 and Sept. 21, Earth’s equator passes the center of the sun, which are known as “equinoxes.” These two dates mark the point at which hours of day and night are nearly equal.

Why Google has given the shortest day of the year a doodle?

Google has marked the shortest day of the year with an animated Doodle on its homepage.
The Doodle depicts a cartoon Father Christmas helping two children to build a snowman before the children’s mother appears and produces a carrot from her shopping bag to use as the snowman’s nose.

The winter solstice occurs when the sun’s daily maximum elevation in the sky is at its lowest and the North Pole is tilted furthest away from the sun. This results in the least number of daylight hours and the longest night of the year. This astronomical phenomenon occurs in December in the Northern Hemisphere and in June in the Southern Hemisphere.

The event has been marked by many cultures throughout history with festivals, rituals, celebrations and the mating of animals, and even today people gather at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise and sunset. The ancient stones are carefully aligned on a sight-line that points to the winter solstice sunset, and it is thought that this event was actually more important to those who constructed the site than the summer equivalent.

Let us return unto our truest selves

Let us open to the Beyond

Beyond our sense of separation

Beyond our egos, beyond our minds

Beyond our limitations, beyond our wounds, beyond the past

Beyond history, beyond stories and concepts

Beyond hopes and fears 

And simply open to encountering a new Divine Awareness

To guide our collective journey on planet Earth.

May the love generated on this Solstice Day 

Touch all life everywhere … all beings, all creatures, all elements

Throughout all time and space.

IOTD …. “Image of the Day”, #80!!

~~November 20, 2014~~ 

Autumn Fairy …. on the way out!


When does Autumn end?


In the northern hemisphere of Earth, Fall begins on the Autumnal equinox (22-23 September) and ends on the Winter solstice (21-22 December).

In the southern hemisphere of Earth, Fall begins on the Autumnal equinox (20-21 March) and ends on the Winter solstice (20-21 June).


The World Meteorological Organization officially mandates September 1 of any year as the first day of the climatological autumn and November 30 as the last day in the northern hemisphere.

In the southern hemisphere, the climatological autumn begins March 1 and ends May 31.

“As it appears in … “


A dear blogger friend taught me about this concept.

You can find Michelle here:

~In her own words~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
