Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


The Darkest Day

This is it, the shortest day of the year. The sun has already disappeared so technically I've survived and it all gets better from here.

Last year when we arrived in Oslo the days were already miserably short, especially compared to Singapore, and it was such a shock that the getting-still-shorter didn't seem that much more awful. This year, however.... We've gone from the glory days of unlimited summer sun to, well, this dismal mess, and I have not enjoyed it. I admit that when the sun is out, it is very pretty. I kinda like having "golden hour" all day. I just wish the day was longer. Happily, my wish starts coming true, incrementally, beginning tomorrow.
