Pete's Log: happy winter solstice!Entry #757, Fri, December 22, 2000, 00:46 EST (Life in General)
(posted when I was 22 years old.)
We mustn't forget, either, that today was the shortest day of the year. Darkness is feasting upon us. But I've returned to some of my old habits, it seems. I started out break wearing reasonable gear for the weather, but today I pretty much walked around outside in a tshirt. I see no reason to wear a coat when all it does is add unnecessary bulk. And my ND sweatshirt smells like smoke from that night at the eldo, and I'm perfectly comfortable in a tshirt. And you know, a couple years ago, Greg (drawing blank on last name right now -- high school buddy Greg) recognized me when I was in town over break because I was wearing only a tshirt. So how can old friends recognize me if I wear more?
It's too bad it's cloudy out right now. I'd really like to go look at the sky. See the majestic stars during the night that darkness reigns supremest. I really can get into this solstice stuff. It's almost a shame I'm not a pagan... ooooh, or an animist... that'd be fun.
