Today shows on most calendars as the winter solstice, and that makes me smile. In my neck of the woods … er … cove in the boro, it’s just another workday. But at many times in as many places, it’s been a BIG day. For me, the winter solstice coveys more hope. So here’s a question . . . do you prefer the winter solstice or
the summer? Summer solstygians or
winter ones? It fits that these red-thirsty ones hang out at a LIGHT ship in the dark season. Unrelated, see some great lightship fotos from Oyster Bay at the end of this post.

happy solstice! From today, daylight starts lengthening again.
