Today, the sun will set at 4:15pm here in Vermont, marking the shortest day of the year.
How will you spend its limited light?
You could wish away the hours, lamenting winter's arrival, dreaming of hazy August afternoons.
Or you could put your laptop aside and bolt through the doors. For even the shortest day contains ample time for a visit with friends, a hike in the woods and a bike ride at dusk to chase down the sun's final rays.
The choice is yours.
How will you celebrate the Solstice?
