Happy Winter Solstice! It’s the shortest darn day of the year! ❄️✨
The term solstice comes from the Latin word solstitium, meaning “the sun stands still,” because the Sun reaches its southernmost position as seen from the Earth. The Sun seems to stand still at the Tropic of Capricorn, and then reverses its direction. 🌞
Happily, what it also means is that we start gaining more daylight bit by bit from here on out.
My song, “Winter’s Coming,” suits the day perfectly - it’s a sweet round accompanied simply by pizzicato violin (that’s me), and I’d like to give it to you right here. Best enjoyed while snuggling with little ones, maybe with some hot cocoa… ☕
However you celebrate this day and this season, I hope you’re safe and warm, and with people you love. I’m so grateful for your support of me and my work bringing music, movement and mindfulness to children! ❄️✨
