Winter Solstice 2016

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right
Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right
Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun,...
-The Beatles 1969

*****
I can remember the first time I heard this song...
sitting high above the high school football field
on the steps of the Healdsburg Cemetary as a teenager.
Something clicked inside of me that day
and that moment is forever in my memory,
as was the viewing of these life-size pieces
of amazing paper maché figures
and meeting their creator,
San MIquel de Allende artist Adolfo Falcón Garza
in October of 2012.

*****
May this return of the sun
touch our hearts
and open to this new light birthing within us all.
