Warmth


I'm sitting at my desk at 4:30pm. My phone hasn't rung
for almost two hours. I haven't received a work related
email in almost three hours. I feel like I'm one of the
last people in Antarctica still working on a Saturday
afternoon. But...the sun, in it's process of slowly
setting, later and later each day, is now peeking into
my window, forcing me to turn my head slightly if I don't
want to be blinded. A very small part of me is annoyed,
while the other 95% of me closes my eyes and feels the
warmth on my face. It's amazing how good that feels after
so many months of cold.

...and at the same time at 80 degrees north, we're just realizing it's finally getting dark at midnight after our long summer. guess it really is a small world now.

enjoy your last few weeks on the ice.
