And so the earth turns. The days here in the Northern Hemisphere will get longer.
Although it barely seems possible, we’ll get a little bit more sun every day. Helped along, I am sure, by all the bright and hopeful lights people have strung up on most every available surface.
And by the candles on my front porch last night.
They burned all night, and with any luck at all, the sun will be so intrigued by them that she’ll come to investigate and decide to stay a while.
