Merry winter solstice
The year 2012 is almost gone. Wow.
Today is the shortest day of the year, which where I live means the sun will set just after 4:00 pm, PST. But starting tomorrow, every day sunset will be a minute later, and sunrise will be a minute earlier. It’s the price one pays for darkness that only truly comes after 11:00 pm in the summer.
So I’m offering this simple phrase, to kids from one to 92: Have a happy and joyous celebration of light, whatever form that might take. (And if that form happens to be Chanukah, I hope it was a good one.)
And as always, if the weather is not too frightful, fire up the scooter and go for a ride. Because the best way to keep gasoline from going bad is to burn it.
