Winter Solstice

Tuesday evening, at about 11:30, marks the beginning of the end in some respects, and the start of the beginning in others — the nights will begin to get just a little shorter, so those long, long nights will slowly begin to brighten, but the winter season begins, and the coldest weather is still ahead of us. Watching the weather reports from the rest of the country, however, makes me even more happy to be where I am. There’s a lot to be said for southeast Texas in January. A friend emailed yesterday and asked if we could go kayaking this weekend. I had to decline, but it occurred to me that we’re fortunate to be able to even consider kayaking this time of the year.
