Jodi Roberts and Monitca LeCrone signaling coming of the light

Jodi Roberts and Monica LeCrone signaling the coming of the light at the 2008 Winter SolstiCelebration

For many year, I did a long page of photographs of the latest solstice celebration. The last couple years, Amy "Moonlady" Martin did most of the text. She doesn't organize the summer celebrations anymore, and I don't photograph them, having tired of a pagan celebration in a Christian church. It's the summer solstices that are my favorites, although the winter ones are more photogenic.
