Feminine Moments' newsletter - Winter Solstice, issue #110

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

I send my season greetings and best wishes for your holidays. May they be a happy and uncomplicated period in our strange times. The new cycle has started. The world IS safe and need not be 'saved', even though it may take us some time to see it. Go make more art or go sit with a work of art. It is this kind of focused energy and love that we can spread to the rest of humanity. No more war, no more polarities. May the solstice with its new light bring peace to everybody. Happy winter solstice!
