One Man's Paradise

Winter Solstice

“When small men
begin to cast big shadows,
the sun is about to set.”

Lin Yutang


It’s  all uphill from now on, if you live north of the equator…

6 hours and 6 minutes, those were our daylight hours today. I am stranded at home thanks to rain, snow, and temperatures around freezing. The roads have turned into an ice rink, even walking is treacherous. Well, that’s winter. We are prepared and good to go, even if I don’t make it into town until next year. I’ll run out of movies, first.

Lin Yutang was a prolific Chinese writer, translator, and linguist. He also invented a Chinese typewriter and obviously had a good sense of humor.
