The Shortest Day

Andy Goldsworthy

I am a child of light!  The light of day awakens me, the darkness means sleep.  I am most alive when the sun is shining, when a shaft of sunlight crosses the floor or hits my face as I step out the door.

I welcome the Winter Solstice -- because I know that the shortest day will soon be past and I can look forward to each day getting a little longer, second by second, minute by minute until light is over the land for hours at a time.

I will walk today as if I were opening a door onto more light with each passing day.

  1. I agree!! Give me light. Not just light, but bright sunlight.

    Merry Christmas

  2. More light coming! Yes, that's a wonderful thought!

  3. It's amazing how fast more light comes back, and its a comforting thought that it starts happening at the very beginning of winter.

  4. Me too, welcoming MORE LIGHT!
    Still, if not to be found, we must make our own ;>}
    Happy Winter Solstice, Penny!!
