It is Winter Solstice and while we know the days will begin getting longer, that the sun is returning…we also know that it is a slow process. It is the first day of winter and so we must make peace with the dark cold days of the season.
It was a Sunday afternoon and I needed some quiet time in nature. The best and closest place I could find was a school playground. I gave in to the shade of a tree, sat down and closed my eyes. Only a block away traffic roared and all around me people were busy with Sunday yard work.
Today I went outside to see what was happening with the ducks here at our neighborhood pond. Looking for a sign of what is really going on in my life behind the scenes, I came around the corner anxious to see what the ducks were up to today.
I admire Walt. He was a visionary who followed up his dreams with action. He created a place where families could come together, where parents would unwind and put behind their day to day troubles, and actually play with their children, as if they were children again.
