Seen in the Neighborhood
By Caitlin Hawke
Enjoy the nine hours, fifteen minutes and eighteen seconds of daylight on Thursday. For you lightlovers, it's all downhill from here! By the 31st you get three more minutes of daylight, and so it goes.
How will you tip your hat to the dark today? Now that you can take a break from flipping latkes, spinning dreidels and running around on the season's forced spending spree, why not come out and sing at the Block Association event.
And now I leave you with images seen in the neighborhood during our pre-winter lead in to the solstice. We've already been dusted three or four times with a suspicious white powder. Audrey got hers (below) and the skies have been hoarier than usual. Thanks to neighbors Bob Donohue and David Ochoa for these shots. I need to go waterproof my old boots but in the meantime say to old man Winter: Bring. It. On!
After all, it's the only route to the vernal equinox. And I am all about that.
