I left the following comment in a blog and thought I should copy and share it here too. This is the sort of thing I don't often share except in my personal journal or blog so I wouldn't necessarily consider this a sign-of-things-to-come-in-2012 but you never know. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy!
Last night I had a curious experience while sitting in one room. The blinds to the windows that face southwest were closed because the setting sun streams blindingly through them by the time we approach twilight. I got up to do something and returned to my space on the couch when I noticed the brilliant slant of orange light flashing to the east, my left. Confused, I paused to let the dance of light play briefly on my face before turning to ascertain how there was evening sunlight in the east. Although I solved the mystery, its effects remained and I allowed myself the joy of this impossible moment.
