I was in the car this morning with my neighbors, Cookie and Pat. As we were making our way to Lakeshore Drive, Cookie asked the question: Would you rather have 20 hours of darkness or 20 hours of sunlight each day? Odd question and I didn’t really want either. My second thought was 20 hours of darkness. Perhaps it’s the time of year and the fact that it’s actually cold today – and curling up under a warm cover sounds pretty good.
Cookie was really clear – 20 hours of sunshine was her first choice. So it made me think a bit more – would I really want 2o hours of darkness a day? Absolutely NOT – especially if I expand the definition of darkness beyond the lack of sunlight to a dark perspective. 20 hours of negativity each day would be horrible.
So Cookie, Pat, and each of you, I vote for 2o hours of light – whether it comes from the sun, encouraging words, or a kind gesture of the heart.
Happy Wednesday and Happy Birthday Betty,
