Winter Solstice

The sun is setting as I write this.  It’s twenty minutes after four.  The sun rose at 7:20 am. The first day of winter, the shortest day of the year.

After I post this I’ll be going into the barnyard where I’ll light the wood I’ve been collecting since the summer to make a bonfire. I’ll get to watch the day fade to darkness and see the moon rise over the treetops. Jon will join me for a while, but I always want to stay out longer than him. And I always wonder, since I enjoy it so much,  why I don’t have fires more often.

I think this time I’ll howl at the moon and see if I can get Fate to join me.

  1. I miss campfires. I love the scent of woodsmoke and watching the stars and moon in the night sky. Brings back beautiful memories. Enjoy Maria. I hope Fate joins you and maybe a coyote pack in the distance.
