In This Issue:

"The winter solstice  (December 21) time is no longer celebrated as it once was, with the understanding that this is a period of descent and rest, of going within our homes, within ourselves and taking in all that we have been through, all that has passed in this full year which is coming to a close... like nature and the animal kingdom around us, this time of hibernation is so necessary for our tired limbs, our burdened minds.

Our modern culture teaches avoidance at a max at this time; alcohol, lights, shopping, overworking, overspending, comfort food, and consumerism. 

And yet the natural tug to go inwards as nearly all creatures are doing is strong and the weather so bitter that people are left feeling that winter is hard, because, for those of us without burning fires and big festive families, it can be lonely and isolating. Whereas in actual fact winter is kind, she points us in her quiet soft way towards our inner self, towards this annual time of peace and reflection, embracing the darkness and forgiving, accepting, and loving embracing goodbye the past year.

"Winter takes away the distractions, the buzz, and presents us with the perfect time to rest and withdraw into a womb-like love, bringing fire & light to our hearth".

.. and then, just around the corner the new year will begin again, and like a seed planted deep in the earth, we will all rise with renewed energy once again to dance in the sunlight

Life is a gift ❤  a Happy winter to you all..."

IN REAL ESTATE:

 Across the North Okanagan 423 properties are showing as active for sale down substantially from 450 last Friday.  We are wondering if the number of active listings will dip below 400 before the end of the year! 

Over the last week, 25 new listings were activated, and 44 properties moved to sold status.  Prices were reduced on 3 listings and increased on 1. Sales ranged from $80,000.  to $1,800,000.  These numbers include homes, townhomes, apartments, manufactured homes, and lots and land.
