too many words by laura lemay

happy darkest day

Today marks the winter solstice, the darkest day of the year. Out here in California, we get 9 hours 37 minutes of sunlight today. Because day length is so important to my emotional wellbeing I intend to celebrate the solstice by eating everything in the house and then going to bed at sunset, which today is around 3PM.

The good news is that it only gets better from here.
