On the way home today I passed a neighbor and she greeted me. Nancy is a leading citizen of our village and a woman of few words. I was deeply honored.
“Nice sunlight today.”
I started at her words; they were odd to me. I had never heard them before and as she walked on by I couldn’t stop thinking about them. The newness of the thought rolled around in my mind and found their context in the long, dark months I had just experienced. Of course! What could possibly be a more cheerful greeting, in this place, on this day? “Nice sunlight today.” The sunlight is foremost on our minds and we have been blessed with many cloudless days of late. Our skies are sunny, we are grateful, and every day is 7 minutes longer than the one before. Sunlight and darkness are the rhythm of our world.
