The people in the northern half of the Northern Hemisphere know what I’m talking about. In early October it starts…the moaning and groaning and the dreading of darkness. And in cloudy, rainy places it’s worse. Today, the sun’s elevation is at its lowest. Meaning longer shadows. No "high noon."
Stick a mountain or two in the way of the weak sun’s rays and you have twilight all day long. And we live nowhere near the Land of the Midnight Sun.
But tomorrow… ah! tomorrow ... will seem like this:
It's no wonder people hold festivals and celebrations for this solstice. We yearn for this day. It's an endurance race to get here. "If I can make it through the longest night, then the next day, things will turn around. So eat your Yule Log and enjoy the company of friends, for tomorrow will turn us all toward more daylight hours.
This year has been one of change (when aren't they?) and one of my goals was to get some of my books into print.
I have! I have! And I'm so very pleased to say that my three Christmas books are now in print. You can find them here on Amazon
May the spirit of the season warm you and light your way.
