Happy Solstice!

Filed under: — Jaime @ 8:32 pm

Happy Solstice, everyone. I love this day. Our side of the earth begins its tilt back toward the sun. The daylight hours get longer for the next six months, and I’m happier for it.

Mike and I had an interesting solstice moment today. A few minutes before sunset, I was at work, not working, thinking about the solstice and googling to find a sunset time schedule for the area. As I was looking for this, Mike IMs me from home as if he were right there and says, “Shortest day of the year, right?” We do curious, little things like that a lot to each other. I rarely manage to remember to write them down. No one else is on our wavelength though. It was one of those days where everyone seemed to move on a slower plane or maybe my dimension settings were set a little fast. Either way, it seemed like most didn’t care it was such a great day and just plodded along with their 1,000 yard stares.

Enjoy the voluminous darkness.
