The coming solstice

Well, here we are December 11, 2013 and the earliest sunsets of the year in Boston.  That is something I really hate!  It has been grey and gloomy, and the solstice is very near.  There has already been snow and ice.  I am refusing to let it get me down.  People are dressed in bright seasonal clothes.  I spent a half an hour on Sunday watching the children and parents in line at the Mall, waiting for Santa Claus.  I was going to take a few pictures, but he apparently was running late.  Too many reindeer to feed?

There are pictures to be taken – even in the seemingly drabbest light and most mundane things.  I amused myself taking this IPhone image of the sun bravely trying to break through thick December clouds and then through a tightly woven pull-curtain.  It is, I think, a tribute to the beauty of diffuse light. I’ll take the Moiré pattern as an added bonus.

    Wonderful pic! Very Zen, in my light-starved eyes.
