Friday December 16th 2011 Tim
I have been informed that
this year of 2011, Winter Solstice is 12.30 am Eastern Standard
time on Thursday the twenty second of December. Some of us may
plant garlic, and if they do, I hope they observe correct patterns of
planting which should incorporate the idea of movement and circularity.
Something we in mail order retail have already seen too much of.
This year, however, the awesome
responsibility of ensuring that the days do indeed begin to lengthen falls
to The Artist. And vague she is about the nature of the procedure, but I
understand it involves a push mower, a pattern in grass and pacing about
hoping for snow. My own role will be that of excitable spectator, and
I may be called upon to assist with rake and wheel barrow.
