This will be our last virtual group session of 2021! We will be taking a holiday break to give our volunteer facilitators time off for celebration, rest and time with family. Please join us for our next session on January 10th, 2022 at 6pm EST, with more times to be listed on our Live Virtual Group Sessions page.
Winter Solstice by Hilda Morley A cold night crosses our path The world appears very large, very round now extending far as the moon does It is from the moon this cold travels It is the light of the moon that causes this night reflecting distance in its own light so coldly (from one side of the earth to the other) It is the length of this coldness It is the long distance between two points which are not in a line now not a straightness (however straight) but a curve only, silver that is a rock reflecting not metal but a rock accepting distance (a scream in silence where between the two points what touches is a curve around the world (the dance unmoving).
