In a global culture that gradually moves itself toward 24-hour days that are, on a vast majority, spent indoors, the aspect that maintains our agricultural sense of the harvest is the collection of holidays celebrated around the world between October and January. It is no coincidence that Christmas is four days after Winter Solstice, and that we celebrate the beginnings of hope for a better life and a better world on the darkest night of the year.

An interpretation of Stille Nacht by Josef Moht and Franz Xaver Gruber.

Thank you for comments…  Merry Christmas, Happy whatever you celebrate, best wishes to everyone.

I’ll have more to say when things are a bit less busy.
See you next time.
