December is upon us and so softly and silently did it creep near. The longest and darkest nights will soon be here. I decorate my home so that it is more magical to spend to time in than usual but still I remind myself that I am not quarantined within these walls because it cold or dark. The winter wood holds new marvels. So I watch the sun set and the moon rise and keep warm by a winter fire. May your December be filled with some natural wonder, too.
