Best Wishes for the New Year

It's -7 Fahrenheit, cold enough so the snow crunches underfoot and under the wheels of cars, but not so cold that the snow squeaks.

As I have mentioned before, my mood goes down in the dark time of year; and it has done its usual descent this year. But we're past the winter solstice, and the days are beginning to lengthen.

It's been a good winter thus far, cold enough so snow stays on the ground, and enough snow so the plowed up banks are pretty high. If I'm going to have to endure short days, I want a white snow cover as well, reflecting what sunlight there is, making the short days bright.

Best wishes for the new year, which is not starting well with the attack on Gaza. But we will be rid of Bush in 20 days, and with luck and grit Obama may be able to get something useful done for the country and the planet.
