Looking toward Sunreturn

This is the time when I just want the cycle to wind down and Sunreturn to promise that the days will get longer, and a new year is ahead of us. Forget Christmas, forget New Year. Those are artificial. The real date is the Solstice. Once that happens, I feel like I can breathe again. I might even decide to feel Christmas-y. But Solstice seems to be the part in my hardwiring.

About that Christmas-y...I am going to Dickens Faire, but as an Edwardian tourist, making comments about "Oh, isn't it so wonderful that they do these old-fashioned Christmas fairs? It makes me feel like a little girl again...I remember my mother in her hoopskirt and bonnet..." Because I can't really go as a regular tourist, because that's No Fun, so I suddenly hit on the idea that would relieve some of the same-old, same-old I feel about Dickens Faire, at this point. It appeals to my warped sensibilities.
