The apparent path of the sun reached its southernmost point at the moment this column posted, 10:44 UTC, which is why it’s a little late; I can never resist posting at the moment when it’s this close to normal posting time. This is a time for remembrance, renewal and rebirth; I wish for all my readers the blessings of the season, and pray that all of you get all you hope for in the new year. Blessed Be!
