|"Solstice Mood," 5 x 7 watercolor holiday greeting card|
Darkest, longest night in a dark, long year.
When light is more rare, more precious. Metaphors for 2020 pandemics of disease, racism, violence, hatred, and political chaos.
"It's Friday, but Sunday's coming," a famous Baptist minister, Tony Compolo, https://www.tonycampolo.org/ once preached about Easter...but it fits in all dark times.
Light begins to return tomorrow, darkness begins to wane. More metaphor for our future, our present.
We need to remember the words of John about the birth of Jesus, "and the darkness has not overcome it."
