It is the solstice. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is the longest night of the year, the shortest day. After today, the tilt of the earth brings us back into favour with the sun, days will grow longer, there will be more light, more warmth. And in the southern hemisphere, it is the peak of summer, generous light drenches the day. A summit has been reached.
How do you recognize when you’ve passed a turning point? How do you mark it?
