Midwinter

December 21, 2012

Odd name for the Winter solstice which is actually the first¬†day of the season. Call it what you will, it is absolutely my most favorite of days. It marks the shortest day of the year in terms of daylight¬†but signals the slow, steady increase in daylight hours as we move into spring. Sure, it might not seem like a big thing to you but trust me, if you live anywhere near the midwest, you will immediately notice that the sky has not gone to pitch at 4:45 in the afternoon. There is a feeling of hope…yes, that spring is just one season away. So, celebrate with me if you care to, with anything ( hell, everything ) that reminds you of spring… and relish every extra minute of daylight.Copy (2) of whthyc2FCopy of whthyc1F
