The Sun’s back, they say. But she isn’t really. She doesn’t show herself for very long every day and, truth be told, until the summer, she really isn’t back at all.
At the same time, this is a time of joy for all of us inside the Arctic circle. For the sun becomes tangible. We all know how it feels when she is truly back. We feel it already now.
Here’s me, a great ape studying science and getting all teary-eyed about the nutation of the Earth’s rotational axis. Go figure! 🙂
