Reverie is a visual notebook series exploring musings, daydreams, and studies of practices and cultures that inspire our own. On a particularly significant winter solstice, find a collection of spaces that illustrate a refined meaning of abundance. Throughout history, the solstice has brought forward a look to longer sun-filled days and copious harvests ahead. With lesser significance in the day itself as the forthcoming months, this is a time to look on for rebirth and growth. There are many notable celebrations of the day, such as the Romans celebrating in excess with a weeklong revelry of Saturn, their god of agricultural wealth and renewal. How do we, now, honor abundance without excess? Some thoughts: the comfort of the home, refined table settings with what you need and nothing more, the ritual of creating and sharing a meal with loved ones. Consider these notions to be lavish, abundant, and opulent to set the tone for the months ahead.
