"It" is happening! Again! For us Northern Hemisphere denizens coiled in our various corners ... the Sun fell to its knees, gasped, twitched, and began to Arise at 0022AM GMT 22 December (Universal Time), 722PM EST 21 December, 422PM PST 21 December. One micrometer at a burst ... Darkness is being Vanquished. Congratulations S.A.D.ies for having survived another one! Susan and I tipped a glass and listened to the Beatles melodiously declare that "here comes the sun" and "things are getting better all the time"!
