Tonight at Paca Pride Guest Ranch the confluence of cooperative weather fronts brings us a great opportunity to usher in the return to longer days along with a fostering of festive winter spirits! We’ll be lighting a Winter Solstice bonfire and placing a symbolic rock at the fire pit to mark the position of the sun in the sky as it sets on the shortest day of the year. The clear sunny day, and warm partly cloudy night will afford us with some fantastic night views lit by the still full moon that was eclipsed last night.
All are welcome to stop on in start at 6pm. Bring a folding chair if you so desire, sit around the bonfire, enjoy the sense of communal spirit, and reflect upon the journey made through the previous year. In addition, if you wish, toss a symbolic token to burn in the fire and mark the shedding of old skins, old habits, or the transition into new beginnings.
We’ll also be setting out a “Generous Gesture” can to foster good will and strengthen our bonds with community. Consider donating a symbolic dollar amount and help us raise funds and further the great efforts for our all-volunteer fire department, the Robe Valley Fire Dept. We’ll donate what we collect to them.
