When I was in Vienna over Christmas my husband and I took a magical walk on the Winter Solstice through the snow-covered gardens of Schonbrunn Palace. The peace of that foggy day still sings in my heart. Celebrate the gifts of winter with me. Breathe deeply and feel the invitation to savor stillness. Those of you who read here regularly know that winter calls to me and I am called to share her gifts.
