Marking Time

By Libra

Winter solstice-Scotland

Shortest day of the year- and will I be glad to see the back of it.
From now on each day will gradually lengthen, albeit initially by less than a minute.
 
Tonight is the longest night of the year with the sun not rising until 8.05 tomorrow morning though I suspect we won’t see it in Scotland until later- if at all.
 
While  pagan and druid communities may be celebrating the first sunrise the rest of us will be busy doing last minute shopping.
