This morning, at 07.30, as I came into work, something simple but wonderful happened ; it was light. The previous day, it had been still night, but this morning it was light. I can’t explain it, but this difference was hugely important to me and now, as I gaze out from my office, the simple fact that it is day is somehow comforting. It is a feeling that things are as they should be. Going into work whilst it’s still dark gives the impression somehow that something is not right, that something, the night, is being taken away from us. The early light also hints at lengthening days and the coming of spring and that, in turn, puts a song in the soul.
