Light is Returning–Charlie Murphy (Notecard)

The image was originally a screenprint produced in the winter of 1996. Northland Poster Collective (a group of artists which included RLM) had been struggling to keep the heat on after a derelict landlord hadn’t paid the bills. The poster was one of many fundraisers that kept the collective’s storefront on Lake Street in Minneapolis open.

Below the red smiling sun are lyrics from folk singer/songwriter Charlie Murphy (1953-2016). Murphy was a pioneering musician in regards to promoting gay rights and challenging sexism. His 1984 song “Light is Returning” is often used by pagan communities around the winter solstice. The lyrics speak to any person or any society facing difficult times.

Light is returning
Even though this is the darkest hour
Nothing can hold back the dawn
Let’s keep it burning
Let’s keep the flame of hope alive
Make safe our journey
Through the storm

In early 2020 we found a small stack of these posters sitting in our archives.  After quickly selling out the screenprints we have re-issued the poster and a notecard – great for the winter holiday and solstice seasons.
