Sometimes Time Feels Like a Loose and Flying Feather —- Monday, December 16, 2019

The school bus goes by our place long before the sun is really up.


Watching time move throughout the day is truly a glory.  The first tinge of sunlight appears long after the world has woken and headed to work, or school, or shopping, or….

Quickly, ever so rapidly the daylight brightens,

then with high speed starts

the swift descent into night

Not long now before the shortest day of the year.  Gratefully we will move forward into flourishing daylight and raw, impressive cold temperatures, which will billow into

Whispering, creaking ice…but at least the days will grow longer.

And THAT will be a very good thing.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. It seems like it’s been a long winter already with snows since early October that aren’t melting. Shorter days and warmer temps would be very welcome!


  2. Lovely sequence of photos Linda…. with your eye and camera, every hour is beautiful. Three or four days now until the daylight hours begin to lengthen … I agree that is a very good thing. Christmas lights help brighten my mood some this month. I like light!
