As expected, things have slowed down in our little world after an unusually busy December. With the weekend approaching—fast for the folks who’ve procrastinated, slowly for children and the folks who have to work today and tomorrow—I figured I’d post this a little earlier than usual.
Yesterday was the winter solstice, and that means that each day we’ll get just a little more sunlight than the day before. I need not remind anyone here what that means in terms of spring and baseball. (And if I do, what the hell are you doing here?!?!)
But it also signifies the beginning of some sort of holiday for multiple faiths and/or creeds for the next month. So whatever your reason for the season, please celebrate safely and in moderation.
And reach out to your friends, loved ones, and family (yes, you have to) and share what you can spare with those who have less.
