The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
It may be a dull, dreary, dim, deadly day. Outside the sky is looking grim and grotty.
It’s the shortest day today.
An extremely important day in my book. The day which marks the end of getting darker and the beginning of getting lighter.
In other words the days start getting longer again.
The darkness of winter is important but I prefer the optimism of the days lengthening.
The chance to stop getting up in the dark and getting home in the dark.
So from tomorrow we can begin awaiting spring and the planting season.
We can start thinking about the daffodils and crocuses and the light!
Now that’s worthy of a celebration!
