today is the shortest day of the year. the solstice itself happened in the five o'clock hour this morning.
i was awake to notice it, but a dark sky is a dark sky and there wasn't much to notice. and yet, imperceptibly, my days move back toward the light.
here is first light and my house, and sunrise at my house.
tomorrow's length of day will be three seconds longer. a whole three second! but they add up, and they gain speed. by early january we will gain a minute of light each day. you'll hardly notice for another month, but it's there.
and may the light grow within you as well.
