  • Dark

    Last week of the sinking sun. The Earth hurtles closer to the sun, but my little piece of paradise edges more and more oblique to the sun, our source of light, of life. We're in the dark season. *** The bell still rings at 7:45 in the morning. It's not a bell anymore, but we still call it that. I blew a conch shell as the bell sounded, an ...

  • Lunar (yawn) eclipse

    In a few moments the Earth's shadow will start to creep across the full moon.

  • 6:38 P.M.

    6:38 P.M. here--the sun stood still, shifted its mass, and headed back north. 6 months ago, when we sat on the opposite side of the sun, I celebrated the summer solstice, a joy tinged with the weight of knowing the sun would start its slow, long course southward. Winter is only hours old, and winters can be brutal here. The light, however is ...
