Today is the Winter Solstice, 2017.

On the midwinter day, during which daylight is shortest and nighttime is longest, I used to curl up in my papasan chair after work with a library book and a cup of honeyed tea, but that was half a century ago, before my back injuries and before computers.  Today on this midwinter day, I am contentedly retired to bed with my bed wedge pillow set, drinking honeyed tea, reading an eBook on my Kindle, and intermittently playing my Sims FreePlay mobile game.  This morning I bought a third Sims horse for my Sims stable, I am building a Sims restaurant, my Sims toddler is ready to have a birthday, and I have twenty-some Sims characters planting potatoes for Simoleons to pay for it all.  What a strange twist in life to go from riding actual horses to laying down and tapping cartoon horses around in a mobile game, but today daylight is still short and nighttime is still long.


In retrospect this blog is the book I was always curious to read:  Self-Help On Getting Old.
