The Wheel Of The Year Turns

The Winter Solstice. The blessing of light returns and 6 hours of daylight will be a distant memory in a few weeks.

Information from Youtube about this stunning video:

December 28, 2009. This time-lapse video shows the entire day (3 hours and 49 minutes) in two minutes. It was shot one week after the actual Winter Solstice (the shortest day of the year in Earth's Northern Hemisphere on December 21). Only 100 miles from the Arctic Circle, this video looks south at the Alaska Mountain Range and shows sunrise through sunset. The video includes pre-dawn (one-half hour before sunrise) and dusk (one-half hour after sunset).

Pour a dram Rosie and turn on the Beatles, "here comes the sun".

That's a good idea Dram. Today it was terribly foggy although the sun did try to break through - but with no success.
