A Glimpse of Fading Light

The Eastern Horizon brightens after six in the morning. The Western horizon dims by five in the afternoon. The days contract ever more, as November deepens.

Darkness grows.

Nonetheless, another year passes. Another Veterans Day, in which we honor those that served. Another St. Martin of Tours, in which we honor the one that laid down his sword for the Prince of Peace.

Another year around the sun.

While light fades this season, today’s bright side remains.

  1. It would be super if you were a veteran on your special birthday, but regardless, happy birthday, and may there be 50 more awaiting. My birthday is Flag Day, and I share it with a punk named Trump (ugh).

  2. The peak of colors definitely brightens the dark days.
    It was good to see and hear you last night. I hope you had a great birthday!
    (My husband’s birthday is in February, and some years he had the long President’s weekend holiday off for his birthday.)

  3. This is such a gorgeous, gorgeous write, Frank! Yes, darkness is growing as days go by and as November deepens. Here’s hoping we hold on to the light within.
