January 21, 2013 ~ sunlight dancing off the prism onto the wall
January 10, 2014
I pull the living room blind at night for privacy plus the sun shines in there in the mornings for most of the year.....until about the 22nd of November. When I see the light from the prism....hanging off the candelabra....splashing on the wall in November....I know that the sun won't be shining into the window again until January. We have about 8 weeks or so of no sun shining in the living room as the sun gets closer to the equator for the shortest day of the year around December 21....the first day of winter.
I had to stand to the left of the window to look at the sunrise this morning.
Then I went out on the back deck and took a photo.
Sunrise from the deck ~ November 21, 2014
Just a silly observation I made. The long days of the winter equinox are upon us. I happened to capture the sun shining on the prism in January the past two years but this is the first time I have captured this in November (top photo). A silly notion but it fascinates me. I'm certainly not looking forward to winter but when mid January comes around we start to see the lengthening of the days again and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Only 2 months to go!
Okay. Am I crazy to notice these things? Do you notice them too? Please say you do. :-}
And it has nothing to do with the fact that I have Vertigo right now. Speaking of which....I am seeing my physiotherapist who is trained in doing the Epley Maneuver on Monday morning. You can click on the link and read how this is done should you be interested or there are also YouTube videos you can watch. Should be interesting!! Hopefully it doesn't make me sick. I'll let you know how it goes.
I hope you have a great weekend. Are you going to observe the sunrise and note the changes in it? Let me know if you do. :)
