It is soon to be December 21, the Winter Solstice, when each succeeding day will be longer than the previous one. This is the one saving grace of Mother Nature. I am a sun lover and miss the daylight at 5pm outside and on June 21, in spite of the long sunshiny days, I feel a regret that from that day forward, the days will be progressively shorter. Until Dec. 21.
I probably feel this so profoundly because I was born and raised in Hawaii.
