Today is the shortest day of the year. It’s also one of my favorite days of the year. I might actually like it better than Christmas day at this point in my life. It’s the day with the least amount of sunlight but the biggest amount of hope. I know that from this day on, every day will get a little bit longer. That spring is one day closer to coming. And days of full sunshine are ahead. I know that at the end of every dark season, light is coming.
I took the above photo at Maidan. This is part of the barbed wire barricade that is running around the square.
