In the Dark

The solstice is past, but winter in the northern hemisphere is still very much upon us, with long, dark nights and short, cold days. This edition of At Water’s Edge travels through several kinds of darkness, some warm, some frigid.

Return the sun…

In the eastern United States, the weather is hellishly cold, dangerously so, with temperatures well below 0° Fahrenheit and wind chills even worse.

Dark days, floods and ocean surges, which cover the landscape and then freeze, endanger life in that part of the country. We hope for the return of the sun to warm the land.
