I was down in Portland yesterday afternoon, and came home around 4:30 – in the dark!!

Every year it takes a while to get used to the shortening of the days, which accelerates when we set our clocks back.

By 1 PM, the day seems “old”. Shadows are cold and long and the welcomed warmth of the daylong sunshine is sucked up in the rapidly approaching darkness.

I light a fire and cheer up.
