I wonder if there was any point to shifting back to Greenwich Mean Time.  The nights are darker and growing more dark every day.  The mornings had a boost of extra light for a while but it seems a pointless thing so far north.  Can it be safer for children going to school if the first week of the extra light is the school holiday?  It will be dark now in the mornings and dark in the evenings.  Today’s full moon adds a cold uplifting winter light to the darkness.  It has a name; the Celtic name for this particular moon is The Dark Moon.
