    I always think about my late mother on the solstice. She was somewhat obsessed with the length of the days and would, were she still alive, have called me by now telliing me “The days will be getting longer!”

    She died four years ago of myelodisplastic syndrome, a blood condition akin to Leukemia. So, in her honor, I’ve made another contribution to the Light The Night campaign.

    Enjoy your broccoli, Greta.

    I’m dreaming of a real Solstice
    Just like the Druids used to know.
    It would be so pleasin’
    To stand there, freezin’
    At Stonehenge, in the sleet and snow.

    I’m dreaming of a real Solstice
    With no eclectic modern feel.
    If your blade is silver, not steel
    Then may all your Solstices be real.

    Is there a credit for that image missing, or is it your original, Greta? I want it on a shirt, and I would rather get it from the designer /artist.

    Myk @ #8: It’s not my original, but I don’t know where it originally came from. I’ve been seeing it around the Internet, unattributed, in several different forms and versions, for years.

    Myk @ #11: You were right. I contacted Lore Sjöberg, who says that while they didn’t originated the phrase “Axial Tilt is the Reason for the Season” (it was a convergent evolution thing, they came up with it but then found that someone else had already coined the phrase), he did come up with the image. I’ve now credited him with it. Thanks for helping me track that down.
