Celestial travel

21 Dec

On our journey ’round the Sun, we spend half a year losing daylight, and half a year gaining it back. One of my favorite days – because I find it so arduous to reach, and such a relief to surmount – is the Winter Solstice, the day that marks the apex of lost daylight. Although, I really should be celebrating tomorrow, today is the day we in the Northern Hemisphere relish the end, so that we can welcome the return of the light. It’s nice to know that even when I can’t get out and further explore this remarkable planet, the rock itself is taking me on a ride ;)

    Living in Northern Alaska in the summer one has to become used to no darkness and in winter we revel whenever we see the sun, it is just part of our journey down life’s road.
