    Today is our darkest day of the year. We had three seconds less daylight than yesterday, all clouds aside. Tomorrow we get about an extra second! Today we get eight hours, 49 minutes, and 13 seconds here at a latitude of 44.56 degrees north. At 20:19 this evening, or local star will cease its apparent southward journey and appear to stand still in the sky before it returns. Solstice is one of the most important moments in my annual cycle. May you enjoy yours and, if in the northern hemisphere, the return of the light. If you are south of the equator enjoy all the light you have today!

    My friends host a solstice party every year. This year it actually takes place on the day of the solstice. YAY!

    I'm ready for some longer days. It's hard to get some dog walks and hikes in on these short days.

    The end of December and mid-to late February are always difficult for me. This year I'm planning a trip to the tropics to get out of the valley. My fear is I'll like it a LOT, and it's not something I can really afford to do that often.

    Being a little south of me, you get seven extra minutes of daylight compared to me today. Enjoy it! Then, lift your glass to the skies at the moment of solstice -- approximately 21:19 your local time, and celebrate the return of the daylight!

    I'm in! Seeking a chatroom to keep motivated and hopefully inspire others, especially those who think they need to give up on fitness and health just because they're getting older. Nothing is more sexy than a confident and healthy middle-ager!
