Mornings of the New Year

Another round of sametimesameplacing, this time with a variation (and no, it’s not the darkness). So first, the classic shot:

I freely admit, this is a week ago, so maybe it isn’t quite as dark anymore…

This time, however, here’s a peek back towards the station and the town, just as the outbound (outbound from the capital, that is) train is arriving:

We have since received a lot more snow, which has all melted again, but at least it looks a little bit like winter.

Today’s song talks a lot about December, but it still sounds great in January. It’s from Blue Rodeo, a classic Canadian band previously mentioned by voyager:

Hey hey I guess it hasn’t hit me yet
I fell through this crack
And I kinda lost my head
I stand transfixed
Before this street light
Watching the snow fall
On this cold December night
And out in the middle of Lake Ontario
The same snow is falling
On the deep silent water
The great dark wonder
Into the waves of my heart
Into the waves of my heart
Of my heart
Sounds like home to me.

    I like the second shot with the train arriving. These night photos are lovely, although I really don’t like to imagine myself having to wake up and leave home in this darkness. Thankfully I rarely need to do so.

    BTW, did you ever try to recover the Acceptance Ring?

    Also, this is 7.30 AM, nothing extraordinary. In about half a year, it’ll look like noon.
    (And I come home in darkness, too -- by the time the working day is over at 16.30, night has managed to fall. At least my office and the lab rooms now have actual windows, so it doesn’t feel quite so much like living in a cave.)
