The return of the light
Updated: Feb 8, 2022
It was this past Saturday, I could feel the sun lingering on my skin, noticing how the days have become a little longer again. After the heavy Swedish darkness during December and January, it’s always a pleasure to meet the light, including to see what the renewed daylight is showing us, when all has become visible again.
In Portugal, the transitions between the seasons are far less dramatic and much softer. It's just a slight shift of temperature and more brisk air, but not more than the ocean permits. The ocean rules.
In Hawaii, there are almost none. A short period of clouds and rain is their winter, but still far less than in Sweden, or Portugal.
I’d like to rest in this for a while, to just enjoy the welcome. The invitation from Sun to spring!
