The tiny beads of water dance on the orange plastic wrap which encloses the morning paper.  Although it is nearly 9 am, the dark grey skies look like Connecticut (from where I migrated) on a day which bodes snow.  A gentle rain, actually what I would call a sprinkle, dampens the earth.     This i...
Celebrations of the winter solstice marked the full rotation of the earth around the sun.    The shortest day of the year is behind us.  Daylight increases with every passing day.  Holiday cheer is abundant and in less than ten days, we will be welcoming 2009 with First Night celebrations.       ...
