Enlightenment

It's the shortest day (or longest night) today - midwinter or winter Solstice day as it's more commonly known.  If, like me, you're in need of a bit of cheering up in the cold, The Light in Winter (now in its sixth year) is currently on at Fed Square in the city.  This year's program has actually been inspired by this year as the National Year of Reading and celebrates the enlightenment that reading sheds on our lives.  Lights and literature to warm us all up!

Local and international artists, designers, architects, filmmakers and multicultural groups are all featured in this free, month-long program of light sculptures, talks, events, workshops, performances and a family-friendly event - the Solstice Celebration being held this Saturday night from 5 - 8 pm.  The celebration marks the longest night of the year and the beginning of the journey towards Spring which is all right with me!  It also sounds like a great excuse to head into town for some hot chocolate and other warming  beverages of your choice.
