On the shortest day of the year, people reach out for light--and one another--in this luminous, lyrical winter solstice story.
Today we stretch the daylightas much as we can, trying to make it last.
On the shortest day of the year, when daylight slips by like sand through one's fingers, people savor the light. As night falls, a community collects driftwood to build a bonfire of hope. Winter Solstice Wish is an ode to the winter solstice, human connectedness, and the hope of renewal.
Inspired by winter solstice bonfires built on a San Diego beach near the author's home, Winter Solstice Wish combines scientific concepts with the intangible longing for connection and togetherness that people all over the world reach for on the shortest day. Backmatter includes information about global winter solstice celebrations and a brief scientific explanation of what's happening on a solstice.
