Hope in the Depths of Winter

In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer.
Albert Camus, French-Algerian author, philosopher and Nobel laureate (1913-1960)

Elation swelled when I looked out the window at 5:30 this evening and found the sky still alight. I don't mind winter's snow and the cold -- in truth, I'm excited by the blizzards that are the vexation of drivers -- but I find afternoon darkness to be disheartening and wearying. Today's realization that the days are getting longer brings energizing hope! Hurray!
