Let there be peace throughout the world”

8.09am - Sunrise over Stonehenge on the #WinterSolstice2022

Happy #WinterSolstice one & all
Brighter days to come

The winter solstice is the exact point when the Earth's pole reaches its maximum tilt away from the sun

The stones of Stonehenge have silently marked the #wintersolstice for thousands of years

There’s a saying: God is sleeping in the stones
“If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind” (Shelley)

Happy #WinterSolstice!

I found a friendly stone and leaned against it. Had a little cry. I thought about how that stone has been there for so many years before me, and how it will be there for so many years after. I felt thankful for the permanence and impermanence that life is.
A choir of red-robed goddesses in the middle of the stones sang:

Hold my hand, sister. Hold my hand.
Hold my hand, brother. Hold my hand.

A special #NeuroThursday for the winter #solstice: how we see darkness and light on the scale of hours, days, and seasons!
Most people know the basics of visual perception, the rod and cone cells that let us see color and contrast. But I'm here today to talk about something more obscure: how we detect days and seasons.
(But I could discuss some fun tricks of the visual "basics" in the new year, if that sounds fun!)
