After the long summer and intense autumn that we have experienced this year, the darkest time has begun. The sun goes up later and later each day and rises earlier and this continuous change has become all the more apparent after the beginning of daylight saving time.
It’s incredible to think, that there are still 2 months ahead where it gets even darker, because already it feels like there is so little light left. It is dark when I leave in the morning and pitch black when I return home.
But in the darkness also lies such a value. The value of light and the beauty of it increase at the same rate as the light fades. The coziness of candles and the beauty of countless stars, standing silently watching in the sky and the rare, breathtaking beauty of Northern lights make up for the rarity of light.
