The December skies have been rather bleak these days. The solstice approaches and I am reminded that the extent of daylight is almost six hours less than it was in June, six months ago.
And these very skies that seem to lack the sun, have been producing parhelia, or sundogs.
We are at the nadir of the year...and I miss the light.
While I'm walking, I have a lot to think about. There are decisions to make.
To decide is to walk facing forward with nary a crick in your neck from looking back at the crossroads. ~Betsy Cañas Garmon
There are things to consider..
Choices are the hinges of destiny. ~Attributed to both Edwin Markham and Pythagoras
Reconsider, v. To seek a justification for a decision already made. ~Ambrose Bierce
....the decision will not be an easy one. ...there are so many reasons to decide one way...and on the other hand there are the other reasons...
Consider what you think justice requires, and decide accordingly. But never give your reasons; for your judgment will probably be right, but your reasons will certainly be wrong. ~Lord Mansfield
Then again, I've got a quarter in my pocket..heads? or tails....perhaps the choice has already been made for me. One thing for certain..the turning point has almost arrived and soon the sun will shine a little longer. Shine a little light on these dark December days.
