shortest day of the year

today is the winter solstice, which means, today the sun barely does anything! it's like a half-day for him. he comes in late, he goes home early. it's getting out of hand. but tomorrow ... i have a feeling that tomorrow, that's all gonna turn around. tomorrow the sun's gonna get up a little earlier. not super early, but earlier than today. and the sun's gonna slowly get his strength back. the sun's gonna start jogging again, trying to eat better. it's a long road ahead, but i believe in him. my guess is that six months from now, we're gonna be seeing the sun beating the hell out of us with terrible heat and 16 hour days. i believe in the sun.
