Winter Solstice

I crave sunlight. Winter, with its cold weather and short days is difficult for me. Someday, I swear I'll go live on the equator where days are longer than they are here, no matter the time of year. I practically live in Canada, and I never realized how much shorter my days are here than for folks down south until I was chatting with my biz partner and friend, Judy, one evening and mentioned I needed to step away to close the blinds and turn on the lights. And she mentioned it was still light where she was -- Georgia. Same time zone, twelve hundred miles farther south.

As the days start getting noticeably shorter in the late fall, I look forward to this day. I know, it probably doesn't make sense to WANT it to be the shortest day of the year, except ... in my odd little brain, what it really means is that we've passed the worst and everything is better from here on out (which is why, conversely, I'm terribly depressed on the summer solstice).

So: HAPPY, HAPPY, JOY, JOY -- we're heading for summer now!


You Are a Pegasus

You are a perfectionist, with an eye for beauty.

You know how to live a good life - and you rarely deviate from your good taste.

While you aren't outgoing, you have excellent social skills.

People admire you and feel very comfortable around you.

Mostly right.

That's a wonderfully positive way of looking at it.

Bob said he so agrees with you! He has the same issue with not having enough sunlight. Which is ONE reason we're about as far north as he wants to be.

In general, you are a very cautious and reserved person.
However, you are also warm hearted, and you enjoy helping others in practical ways.
You are a great teacher, and you are really good at helping people get their lives in order.
You are very intuitive, and you go with your gut. You make good decisions easily.

Bob said that's 3/4 right.

I like the way you look at it. I don't think much about the Summer Solstice, but your take on the Winter Solstice is nice.
My quiz results were the same as Judy's. And are pretty much spot on.

I hope you have a fabulous day!
