The winter hinted at cold but changed its mind a month ago. Even so, the dark and the rain suffice in bringing on the weariness of year’s end. We slog on through the days, surprised by the dark at 4:00. Crows gather early for their roosts. But the mind sets us loose in the play of time, and thoughts of summer tiptoe in to remind us of the light.
