Welcome the Light

21 December 2018 – And now, here in the northern hemisphere, it begins again. Not the calendar year, but the light year.

The sun has been in retreat for six months. Now, as of 8:05 a.m. (Vancouver time) this very day, it turns toward us again.

True, it will only stay with us today until 4:16 p.m. Today, it hangs suspended. But as of tomorrow, day by day, increment by increment, for the next six months, it will linger a little longer. And longer. And longer.

Hello sun, creeping up over the Coast Range Mountains …

Welcome back.

    "The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes" -- Marcel Proust (1871-1922)

    "A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities" -- Rebecca Solnit, "Wanderlust: A History of Walking"
