Winter Solstice has long since passed. I know the northern part of the world has been receiving more light little by little, every day, for a few months now. It's been a gradual, but still noticeable shift in the air and sky. All of a sudden, though, there is more light-a lot more light! I noticed it a few days ago. It's a bright and seemingly unfiltered light. We've had plenty of dazzling Winter days, but this simply feels different.
