We’ve come through another dark winter here in Anchorage and light is returning at a rate of nearly 6 additional minutes/day. This picture is from my walk at 8:30p, just after sunset last night. Deep winter dark is behind us now and the 24/7 light is coming at us fast. I’ve lived the dramatic dark/light/dark/light cycle in Anchorage for enough years now to learn that the light always comes back. But also – the dark is real. Learning to live in hope is intentional work.
