Quiet Light

For the past month we have been experiencing the most beautiful light. Sharply angled and illuminating forgotten corners of our world. This is usually a gray time, the withdrawal walk towards winter; not this year. Yesterday morning we had our breakfast coffee out side, bundled up, the sun almost as far south as it goes. Not quite 3 weeks to the solstice, my favourite day of the year. "Ah," I say," done it," as I eagerly count the increasing minutes of daylight. So, if you are living in a dark place where the sun sets at 4 pm, this light is especially for you.


  1. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I too live where the sun sets at 4 pm and my body says "It's dark out so it must be time to go to sleep now." I'll be back to visit this post to soak in the light and breathe.

  2. You're welcome, you're welcome, you're welcome Jennifer, this wanting to go to bed about 5pm is nuts, JB put the X-mas tree lights out side which helps, don't know how people in the far north or south do it.

    Thanks Matt and Jan

    and thanks Khon-Sha, great to meet you here too, thanks for visiting, and as they say "Don't be a stranger"


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
