This is the time of year that can feel like hard work – not so much because of the rush to get ready for the festivities (whichever they may be), but more because there just are not enough hours of daylight.
So I was interested to read of an experiment to embrace the long, dark nights by letting herself accept the urge to sleep more and rush less. The post is on Quaker Pagan Reflections.
I like the idea of accepting a different rhythm of life for a while, and I was also interested to see that the author did not completely withdraw from the rat race, but continued to go to work as usual. What she did change was her home activities for a few weeks. It really doesn’t sound that much to ask. So if I am still intrigued enough in the New Year, maybe I’ll give it a go for a while, however briefly. At least I will have an excuse for not updating the blog!
