Glittering and Gold
Today marks the first day of winter, the longest night, the winter solstice. To celebrate and acknowledge this special day, I propose to Larry that we take a ride and look at holiday lights. The Christmas light displays are particularly stunning this year, especially with the new snow, so it would seem only fitting that we view them on this longest night of the year. By tomorrow, we'll start the slow return to increased daylight. But for now, I'll appreciate and embrace the darkness, the quiet, the time for reflection and an evening of seeing all that is glittering and gold and beautiful in the Christmas light displays of our community.
