Principio de todo

Today the Sun is shining, the sky is completely 'dégagé' (as they say in the outskirts of Dunkerque, or Duinkerken as it's called in het nederlands), which gives it that very special whiteish-greenish blue shade, and even though the temperature is something like minus 10, there is an awakening freshness to the whole thing.
I have decided this will be a good day. The Sun and its allies shouldn't be the only ones to spread joy and light.
If you want some symbolism, then... it's the last day of February... so I choose Ushuaia's slogan... 'Fin del Mundo — Principio de todo'... 'The end of the World — The beginning of everything'.
Have a wonderful day.

Beginning is one place I've been before
Watching the sunrise on the silver shores
Setting me free again leading the way
It will be a good day

Sometimes I forget

How mighty this earth
Astounding winter skies
Truth is in birth
Peace that it brings to me, my naked eyes
Be a good day

(from the Yessong 'It Will Be A Good Day (The River)')

I Danmark taler man dansk
I Norge taler man norsk
I Frankrig taler man fransk
— Og i Luxembourg taler man lusk.

The moon is closer to the sun than I am to anyone.
