Now, this is a nice example of sights and moments one can experience up in the high north ... Picture is taken yesterday at app 0200 in the morning (same area as last pic, and light show lasted 5 hours). And to be able to lay down in the snow, and have a open eye meditation into a space exploding in aurora borealis is such a sight for these sore eyes ...

If you didn't care
What happened to me
And I didn't care for you

We would zig-zag our way
Through the boredom and pain
Occasionally glancing up through the rain

Wondering which of the
Buggers to blame
And watching for pigs on the wing

Today was nice -- although just plain old sunshine, nothing as fantastic as aurora borealis.

Only one more week to the winter solstice! And then the days will finally begin to get longer!

Maybe I'm just getting older, but this winter has been really difficult for me. This year, I seem to be less able to deal with the cold and the dark.

Where you live, do you have a proper winter with cold and snow? How have you been handling the dark?
Today morning was 14.5C (58F). Highest 25C (77F). Humidity 71%. Clear blue sky.

I wish winter would be longer. Just 80 days before my skin begins to get burned off for next 8 months :( The heat can probably be tolerated but not the 90% humidity.
