Following my own personal Solstice tradition, I climbed a tree on my Christmas Day birthday.
Lots of sticks and vines to weave myself through, so I didn’t get that far up this time.
As for what’s ahead on the path this new year. . .that’s unclear and uncertain.
The trail looks pretty tangled through a shadowy forest.
But I sense it will lead deeper or higher into the natural world.
They’ll be more trees to climb.
