I don't have to point out to anyone how very short the days are this time of the year... we are fast approaching that magical time, the Winter Solstice, when the sun begins to return. I, for one, really cheer on that day, as doing without the light is the worst part of winter for me. I was busy on the computer yesterday afternoon, and caught a glimpse of the time... 4:48 PM, and realized I had to quickly jump up from what I was doing to feed the burros before it was too dark to see. This was the sky that greeted me as I ran out the kitchen door... you have the burros to thank for a sky that truly represents that Gaelic concept of 'in the gloaming' ... I decided to post it for its glorious color, even if a bit off-focus.
