Pretty close to noon this year.
Kind of neat.
Most of us will be able to watch for it.

IF you pay real close attention
you can feel the Earth making the turn!

Days start getting shorter — and I hate that.

To I, it means Winter is on the way.

Way too early for I.

IF you are an atheist I feel bad for you.

Pity you can’t go the whole hog and be areligious along with I.

I will welcome you with open arms.

But, being an atheist is a GOOD START.

Enjoy.

Where else but Stonehenge, one of my favorite stomping grounds in Britain. Went there for the first time in 1973. Took my new puppy, a border collie with me. In those days there were no restrictions whatever about walking up to the stones. You parked the car and just trampled across the grass field. The puppy, named Rousseau (after the Swiss philosopher), lifted his leg up against each and every stone! That is still my abiding memory of ‘the Henge’. Rousseau peeing against all the stones. Makes me sad when I see all the ‘modern’ precautions and restrictions, but I do understand. I am glad that Rousseau and I got to visit it when it was still, more or less, just a pile of old rocks in an open field.


My diagram of what happens to the Sun



The exact moment when the North Pole is most tipped towards the Sun occurs at 5:04 (am) Greenwich. That means 1:04 Eastern. I will still be up. I will symbolically tip my hat on behalf of you all.

It is a sad day. Winter is on the way. Bummer.

Never understood why folks in NH celebrate this day. The day to REVEL is the December, Winter Solstice. Our ‘ancestors’ knew that. They even had a huge holiday to celebrate. We now call it Christmas.

Well, you can, of course, do whatever you want. This is a free country.

But, I will, as ever, as I always do at the Summer Solstice, sulk and start counting the days to the Winter Solstice — my best day of the year.
