OCCUPY WINTER SOLSTICE! ~ Wednesday, December 21st YES! We the people brought back the light!!!!!
Occupy Winter Solstice 2011 at the Waterworks was a hoot! The challenging weather broke and the best of fires, food, and festivities emerged through the mist (Read "To Build a Winter Solstice Fire" here). The Occupy Druid sends his thanks to the wood splitters Kim and Jeff, luminaria lighters Beth, Holly, Catharine and Nancy, fire tenders too numerous to mention, food providers (ditto), the brave musicians Rick, Matt, & Lausanne who occupied the moral high ground, and Cousin Kim for telling the Northwest Corner Conservation Story, the light-showers Charlie and Natasha with the great torches, Susan Borg and the South Mountain Singers for bringing in the light and for all of their tunes especially "Non Nobis" led by Dick Nessen and DEEP PEACE (WOW!), and Waterworks Poet Laureate Mary Pratt for her "Occupy the World" (Mary's Poem), and for all of the potluckers.
To all of you who braved the dark:
WE THE PEOPLE
OCCUPIED THE NIGHT
AND WE THE PEOPLE
BROUGHT BACK THE LIGHT!
