Today is the shortest day of the year, that is there is more darkness than light, so after today the days start to get longer.
This always reminds me of the final book in F Paul Wilson's "Adversary" series, where the days just keep getting shorter.
I have been out for a short walk to post a Christmas card to a good griend and outside it is dark and very cold. As I walking I noticed th elights on the West Road which looked almost magical , I would have loved to capture that in a photograph but the were to far away and my Google Pixel camera , good as it is, couldn't capture it. I always think back to twenty years back when we had film cameras and if you took a picture you then had to wait til you finished the film, then send it off to be developed before you knew when the photograph was OK.
Here is a write up about the Winter Solstice which is far better than what I could tell you, although any excuse for a celebration is good for me.
This is also an excuse to share the excellent "Solstice" by the incredibly talented Matt Berry who I also recently found out was one of the voices in "Disenchantment", as well as being part of teh wonderful "What We Do In The Shadows".
Enjoy this year's Winter Solstice , knowing that tomorrow there will be more light.
