Solstice Morn 2007

Solstice is the day of the “Sun Return,” after the day of the longest night. On the Northern Hemisphere, the setting Sun will set in the same spot for about 3 days, before making a northerly journey again, until the Summer Solstice. We have a tradition of holding a Solstice Vigil (i.e. an excuse for party) and some of us stay up all night, ensuring the Yule log burns all night and sing up the Sun the next morn, at Solstice.

This is one of the photos from 2007, “Solstice Morn 2007.”

// EDIT: added Chinese calligraphy. It reads:

The Winter Solstice arrives in California

In the morning, we looked to the East to wait for the Sunrise

(heh, the Chinese is so much more concise)
