In the morning

Only two more days 'til Winter Solstice. Here in California, it'll happen Monday morning at 9:47 a.m.

I'm really really looking forward to the days getting longer again.

Was listening to iTunes while writing some submission-management code just now, and Vienna Teng's "Lullabye for a Stormy Night" came on. The tune is a little bit too much like "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," but it's nonetheless a lovely song. As usual when her songs come up, I had to stop and listen to the lyrics. It's a song for a frightened child during a storm. I particularly like this bit:

This same rain that draws you near me

Falls on rivers and land

And forests and sand

Makes the beautiful world that you see

In the morning.

There are a couple of awkward phrases in the lyrics, but mostly I like 'em. If you want to hear the whole song before buying it, instead of just the clip from the iTunes Store, there's a YouTube video (where the video part just shows the lyrics flowing past).
