Solstice

21 Dec

Today is the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. Sadly, the work day didn’t feel that way.

Feel free to enjoy the Winter Festival observance of your choice.

On a not entirely unrelated note, I’ve come to a conclusion about why I so enjoy the television program Glee: It’s because it’s really the saddest show on television. All the happy, smiling performances are the characters merely trying to ignore the utter sadness and futility of their small-town lives for a little while.

And yeah, I like the sarcasm, snark, and ham-handed music, but mostly, it’s the despair that ties it all together.
