The Light is Coming..!! The Light is Coming..!!!..
Today marks Winter Solistice. A time to celebrate for an Alaskan, as we start to gain daylight with each passing day. We will go from about 3 1/2 hours currently, to a full day of bright sunshine by summer.
I never thought, really, that I would be celebrating light.
I mean who would have thought that people actually get into that? But when you live here and your actually mesmerized by the small amount of daylight that does comes, well it is almost like Christmas before Christmas actually is here!
What I didn't realize is how easy it has been. I thought living in a place were it was dark 80-90 percent of the day for several months would be difficult. But actually, it's been great. I love the darkness. I love the cold and the darkness. It equals staying in and curling up. Getting warm and cozy in the covers..
We never had an excuse to do that before and now we do!
I loved the sunsets that the darkness provided..
But what I am happy about is that with each few minutes that we gain everyday, I will get to show you more of Alaska.. and all it's beauty!
Happy Winter Solistice!
