I've been waiting for the return of the sun. I know it's also officially winter now too but it may as well be winter given it feels, looks and smells like winter.
Now I can content myself that we are happily moving toward spring. I know I am self-deluded, but I am aware that every day we get a tiny bit more daylight, and the earth tilts those of us in the northern hemisphere a tiny bit more toward the sun. It's a small consolation for the snow and cold yet to come.
Let me have my delusions.
