I missed an important day the other day, caught up the whirlwind that was my first tradeshow. A place where I learned, by the way, that everyone in the business speaks some strange language dominated by acronyms.
The Autumnal Equinox was this past week, and that means that I'll now have less sunlight than, well than pretty much everyone else. We are slipping into the dark season, and before we know it our sun will set for three months.
I don't mind the dark season, never have. It has charms of its own, and it passes quickly. The change snuck up quickly though this year. It seems only yesterday I was revelling in 24 hour light, counting birds and snapping photos.
Soon, the night will be inky dark, and the stars closer than anywhere else on earth, and you can watch them to the music of snow crunching and squeaking under your feet. Soon, it will be our glorious northern night.
