Well here I am looking at Solstice 2008 and remembering winters in Two Mile, near Hazelton, B.C. As children we spent many an evening under a streetlight on an icy road, or preferably on a frozen pond with candles all around playing hockey with frozen horse manure for a puck, T. Eaton catalogues for shin pads, and whatever we could find or make for hockey sticks. There was always a good fire nearby when we were too cold. This past year we spent a wonderful evening at Bearclaw Ranch that I've described before in other stories. As I sat watching people playing on a frozen sheet of ice that our friends, the Alan family had put together I wondered how the simple winter games had stood the test of time. Today with all of that happens in the world to strike fear into our hearts when we sit and watch the local news it is comforting to know we can shut the TV off and get outside and play. We can hear sounds muffled by the snow, skates sliding on the ice and laughter among friends, these things are what I've come to know as warmth in the cold of winter. So for Solstice 2008 It is so very good to know that through all the changes, those things that really make a difference, peace, joy, and love, will always remain the same.
