Winter Light


All seasons have their own cast of light. This time of year here we often get an overcast afternoon and a dark dusk that suddenly and dramatically gives way to a burst of pure, diamond-cutting winter light as the sun drops below the cloud cover and gets a clear shot at the landscape.

Yesterday was such a day. The brightest light of the day drenches us just minutes before total darkness.

I wish I had a book on my table of your photos and words.. to just flip through as the sun sets, words lulling me to sleep, pictures a doorway to my dreams.
