Darkness and Light
Each morning I look out the window and watch the sunrise. This morning it was striking the change in location of the sun. It has happened gradually, but with many mornings of clouds and fog was disguised, and it's now obvious skew now hits me. It has now taken up residence much further South in our tree line. In fact, the sun will barely reach above that tree line these days at it progresses much lower across the sphere each day. We are now almost dark by about 4:20. I relish that special angled light this time of year as we approach the solstice, and that darkest night before the light slowly returns. It is almost as if we are watching the sun nap, and she will soon begin to stir and stretch, as she slowly begins her climb back up higher in the sky.
