I don’t remember much fuss being made re winter solstice in previous years but maybe it seems so peripheral I forgot. Today is that day. I am not thrilled by the cyclic nature of the seasons and all I see is the regrettable future summer on the horizon. I really should move to Kergeulen.
All that said, boy/young man sniffing and wiping his nose on his sleeve on the train was a disaster and horrible.
