When the low sun shines here in the Upper Peninsula at this time of year–and that’s a big when–light enters our house in long ribbons of luminescence. The winter can drag as gray skies loom overhead and lake effect clouds and snow blow off Lake Superior. We’re moving toward winter solstice now, just three short weeks away. Are you OK with seasonal darkness, or is it a challenge? Usually I am fine, but it sometimes gets oh-so-taxing.
Here’s an early December view of our living room with the kitchen behind and to the far right. Please note purple yoga blocks, the better to stretch, stretch, stretch. Which is what we sometimes need to do with our attitudes during long winter days. Thanks for dropping by our little house in the woods! (Brought to you by the game of Photo Shorts.
