Wednesday afternoon at Sunset saw our now-traditional Yule circle, with the lighting of the bonfire. We keep the bonfire burning all night, on the longest night of the year, until sunrise the next morning. After we closed the circle at dawn, we returned home and I got several hours of sleep.
When I woke up, I showered, packed, and at sunset — again — we got into the car and headed south. Many hours later, we saw a beautiful sunrise in northern Ohio. There was a mist in the air, and the sun was behind trees moving by quickly, so we were actually able to get a glimpse of that stunning ball of fusing hydrogen atoms. It was gorgeous. My daughter loved seeing the newborn sun.
