Man, people are depressed these days – hard times economically and almost everyone seems to have the blues, or at least a sinus infection.
But I have some good news for you. Today is the Winter Solstice. Last night was the longest night of the year, and today the shortest day. That means it’s only uphill from now on – an extra minute of sunlight each day will eventually bring us to Spring.
So shake off those blues, mull some wine tonight and sigh in relief. Watch the webcast of the solstice at Newgrange. Everything’s going to be all right. The sun is coming back…
As one of the founding editors of We Love DC, Jenn’s passions are theater and cocktails. After two decades in the city, she’s loved every quirky, mundane, elegant, rude minute of her DC life. A proud advocate for DC’s talented drinks scene, she’s judged the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s ARTINI contest, the DC Rickey Month contest, the Jefferson Hotel’s Quill Cocktail competition, and is a founding member of LUPEC DC. A graduate of Catholic University’s drama program, she toured the country as a member of National Players, and has been both an actor and a costume designer before jumping the aisle to theater criticism. Writing for We Love DC restored her happiness after a life-threatening illness, and she’s grateful to you, dear readers.
