I could write about all the things I have been doing in the UWM Planetarium; however, I feel more inclined to muse about the holidays. I happen to like Christmas: all of it. The music, the food, the treats, the stockings, the presents, the decorations, the letters and cards, the gatherings… But at least once a day I see people who are so caught up in their frenzy that they are not enjoying themselves anymore. I hope you, gentle reader, are following traditions that you enjoy, setting aside stuff that causes you stress, and finding time to have fun with the people you love. I personally find it fulfilling to try to connect with people I haven’t communicated with since last December.
May you have a marvelous and mindful celebration of the winter solstice and of the light that is to come.
