Almost Dark, Almost Solstice

Here's the view from my kitchen window, just before 4 o'clock, when I drive the two gravely miles down the mountain to get the kids from the bus stop. A few minutes after we get home it's dark, so they are leaving and coming home in twilight, and at the end of next week before Christmas break, it will be dark both ends. Then...the earth will stall, teeter and wobble, letting us have more light each day.

Just beautiful - the magical hour.
