As Will and I were driving to the gym this afternoon at 1:35, winter arrived. It really wasn’t that big a deal. It is the perfect first day of winter. A crystal clear blue sky with a December chill. A momentary icy breath as the sun stood over the tropic of capricorn and I think no one noticed. But this evening it will set a few minutes earlier than last night, giving us the longest night of the year. Tomorrow, will be a bit longer as we usher in the old man.
Build a fire, make a cup of Sumatra or Chamomile and hug up to someone warm and take advantage of the longest night.
