A Wintry Sun

What is it about the sun in winter that does not warm us? Even the sunset is not the warm orange glow of summer, it is a cool pink and blue. Perhaps it's because after years of living in the great white north I've learned that a brillinat blue sky with no clouds means that it is bitterly cold, all the heat of the earth escaping into the atmosphere.

But there is still something about the promise of seeing the sun that makes me smile. Maybe that's because just a few short weeks ago my drive home from work was in complete dark, and now I get to watch the sun set. It's a clear sign that spring is around the corner.
