I’d intended to share this here on the actual day of the solstice, but my crazy schedule keeps getting in my way. I think I’m nearly done with that schedule and pretty much back to normal timing, and I can tell you my cats are happy with that. I want to thank you for continuing to follow me through this year when I’ve had to abandon posting for weeks at a time. I’ll share more of what took that time, and activities like this are part of that, in the near future.
In November I was honored to give a presentation about the solstice as part of a program with The Frick Pittsburgh, the organization that manages the Frick family mansion and museum in Pittsburgh. I’ve been waiting for a good opportunity to bring that presentation to you, and the Winter Solstice seemed like a good day to do that.
I put together a narrative with paintings, photos and an essay you may have read here before. You can watch the whole Zoom presentation, “Winter Tales”, or you can read my presentation.
You can find the text and a link to the presentation on my writing website Paths I Have Walked: Winter Solstice Presentation: The Light in the DarknessOther items with the same art or design To find all items on this site with the same art or design, use the search box for the name of the artwork and you'll find all that's available.
