Now that the winter solstice is upon us, we will start to see more daylight. For this, I am grateful. These dark days at the end of autumn sometimes get me down - it's too hard to be outside! As I woke up in the dark this morning, the thought that now the days will get longer cheered me up greatly. I love winter - the snow and the cold, the footprints and middens, the bright blue sky by day and gleaming stars at night - but I like my sunshine also, or at least daylight. And now we are on the way.
