I was actually in the subway at the moment of the Winter Solstice, in transit from seeing Richard Humann in WIlliamsburg to the Spring Street apartment of Susanna Cuyler, who was having her annual Winter Solstice Gathering.
“Oh hell!” I was thinking, “Underground was not where I wanted to be at the Return of the Sun!” Then, I looked at the poster and saw the words “Becoming Human.” It was a poster for a History special!
So, this was all too fitting. A balanced “Above/Under Ground Winter Solstice” where I sold my very first copy of Kundalni’s Daughter, to Susanna.
The book was successfully launched at Susan Cuyler’s Winter Solstice celebration at her Mulberry Street apartment. I lit five candles in the shape of a pentagram surrounding a black and white egg from Tara (representing New Beginnings) and three Narcissus bulbs. I then evoked the intention for the year and read the section of the book on Winter Solstice 2000, before Aaron Olshan, who naturally, insisted I have bare feet!
