Today marks the beginning of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. That means it’s the shortest day of the year! Well, technically all days are 24 hours long but today is when daylight is the shortest. So basically, today is considered to be the darkest day of the year. Let that sink in for a minute.
I’m joking, Don’t think about that too much.
After today, we’ll start to see more light during the day as the Summer Solstice approaches in June 2020. Woo! I am definitely a fan of the Sun, so more daylight please!
There’s a short summary on National Today about the Winter Solstice and what caught my attention is that the Sun will “die” in 5 billion years!
Because I believe in reincarnation, due to thermodynamics (physics) stating that energy is indestructible, this made me wonder how many lifetimes that will be for me after this lifetime as “Jen” and who or what I’ll be by then and where….Hmm.
Who or what do you think you’ll be and where?
Anyways Happy Darkest Day of 2019!
