Blog- four facts about the earth

Summer has faded away.The autumnal equinox has passed. Our days now grow increasingly shorter, and our nights longer for those of us in the northern hemisphere. We now slide toward the winter solstice. Do you know what this means?

The winter solstice is “the time at which the sun is at its southernmost point in the sky (northernmost point in the hemisphere) appearing at noon at its lowest altitude above the horizon. It occurs about December 22 (June 21 in the S hemisphere).”

Knowing this is coming day by day, get out there and grab some rays! Open wide the coverings on your southern-facing windows to brighten your home. These steps will help alleviate the Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) that often affects us in the north.


Not only has summer faded away, but so has the Monday blogpost. This is my last Monday post until my health improves, if it improves. These Monday short posts throughout the summer were my way to keep in touch while I considered whether I would continue to blog twice a week.

Writing a blog takes about ten to twelve hours on average. I need those hours for preparing my next novel, the short story that is part of my Genesis series, and then the final novels in the Genesis trilogy. These are all in the works simultaneously. The pictures above portray those stories.

If you enjoy my blog, pop in and let me know. Make a comment. Your words help me to gauge where to aim my efforts. It would be a great blessing to hear from you.
