Creeping Darkness

As I arose on this first morning of Hanukkah, the sky was black, as usual. Sunrise was officially 9:01 in Klaipėda, and sunset will be 4:02pm. We have only four more days of decreasing sunlight in the northern hemisphere, and then the days will begin to grow slowly once again. It can’t come soon enough!

These words from yesterday’s daily office echo in my ears today:

“The people who walk in darkness
Will see a great light;
Those who live in a dark land,
The light will shine on them.”

(Isaiah 9:2)
